Here I Belong by Matt Hartley
Elsie has lived here all her life. She's seen elections, weddings, wars, people coming, people going. We tell her story over six decades – from the coronation in 1953 to her birthday party today. Staged cabaret style, the action happens all around you, the audience. As we move forward through time the décor and actors change as we take you on a funny and moving journey through sixty years of village life. Bring your friends, bring your family or just bring yourself – there will be cake!

"Intimate, affecting and quietly radical village hall theatre" 4 Stars, The Stage

"Exceptionally authentic and intelligent….fills you with the warmth of country living" 4 stars, BBC Radio Shropshire
