Bovingdon Players Present Cold Comfort Farm

1st of November 2011

by Paul Doust, adapted from the novel by Stella Gibbons.

The orphan Flora Poste, heroine of the piece, likes everything to be tidy, pleasant and comfortable. When she comes to live with eccentric relatives at Cold Comfort Farm in Howling, Sussex, she attempts to alter their muddled and muddified surroundings and encourage the motley collection that is her extended farmyard family to clean up their acts and reach for their respective stars. This will not be easy! Her insane Grandmother Doom, who once saw ‘something nasty in the woodshed’, has a vice-like grip on the occupants of the farm. So who will win the battle of the pitchforks? Will the poetic dryad, Elfine, be whisked into the arms of the handsome local gentry? Will the ‘mollocking’ Seth fulfil his dream of becoming a 1930s matinee idol? Will the evangelizing Amos tour the country, as the apostles of old, preaching hell-fire and damnation from the platform of a nice old tricycle, and will poor daft Rennet stop throwing herself down the well. Come and find out.

This hilarious play will be performed at the Bovingdon Memorial Hall, High Street, Bovingdon, on Thursday 24, Friday 25 and Saturday 26 November and is not to be missed. Tickets are £9 concessions £6. Call the Box Office: 01923 677256.
