It is a love story lampooning both love itself and the social behaviour of the day and follows the story of Patience, a beautiful milkmaid who is loved by poet Reginald Bunthorne.

The production, sponsored by Solley’s Dairy Farm, will take place at 7.30pm from tomorrow (Wednesday) until Saturday.

Tickets cost £9 in advance and £10 on the night at the door, subject to availability.
