Lark Rise to Candleford


Evoking a lively picture of the customs, rituals, poverty and celebration of 1880s rural Oxfordshire, this play, written for a promenade performance, enacts the first day of harvest from sunrise to sunset. We too will spend a day bringing to life the fictional village of Lark Rise, inhabited by a memorable cast of characters, through music, song and Thompson's remarkable text.
