Richard Morgan and Issy Huckle during rehearsals for Crooked Wood which opens next week at Westacre Theatre.

The next in-house production at Westacre Theatre is set to open on Friday, November 17.

There will be six performances of Michael Palin’s television play Crooked Wood.

The drama is centred around 87-year-old Miss Barwick who  needs her stairs repaired. But her visitor is not the tradesman she expected but a ruthless property developer.

Golden Future Properties needs Miss Barwick to move out of her life-long home but why would she want to move?

In a civilised confrontation, can the traditional Miss Barwick hold back new world greed?

You will need to be in the audience to find the outcome.

Tickets can also be booked for performances on Saturday, November 18, Friday, November 24, Saturday, November 25 and Friday and Saturday, December 1 and December 2.

Tickets cost £16 and £12 for under 21-year-olds and can be booked online at or by 01760 755800.

Forthcoming attractions at the theatre include  The Selfish Giant by Oscar Wilde, adapted and directed by Andy Naylor, which will run throughout December with evening and matinee performances.
