George V Playing Field
By Tarvin Webteam - 25th February 2020 6:00am
Ashton Hayes Theatre Club brings Peepolykus' exhilarating combination of verbal slapstick, visual surprise and anarchic comedy to Gustave Flaubert's seminal 19th century masterpiece Madame Bovary. Laugh and cry in equal measure as Emma Bovary chooses the wrong husband. Lose yourself in mesmeric love scenes featuring a procession of devastatingly attractive men (or man!). Rail at the fate of women in a patriarchal society, if you will. Prepare yourself for vermin, moustaches, wild animals, lots of French people and a nun.
A cast of 6 playing 21 roles, Madame Bovary offers abundant opportunities for comedy and slapstick — plus some massive tragedy. Suitable for ages 12 — 112
Tarvin Community Centre at 19.30 on 17th, 19th, 20th and 21st March. Adults £10 and students £8. Bookings http://www.ashtonhayestheatreclub.co.uk or by telephone at 07707 830286 or 01829 751327

There were many discoveries in store for us when, over 40 years ago and in the depths of winter, we moved to Tarvin. Everything was new and we were able (with, as it were, new eyes) to watch the village go through its seasonal evolution: winter becoming spring and then moving into summer. In the spring, it was a joy to see buds beginning to break and, not long thereafter, hedgerows along lanes...
