A Month in the Country – Nobby Dimon and North Country Theatre

Thursday 23rd October at 7.30pm.

Adapted from the novel by JL Carr, and directed by Nobby Dimon this haunting evocation of a past time seems fitting in this first year of the First World War commemorations.

Two men, an artist and an archaeologist, recently returned from the horrors of the trenches, find themselves working side by side in a North Yorkshire village church. What they slowly uncover is an ancient village mystery, hidden passions and the healing power of a month in the country.

This prize winning novel was made into a film with Colin Firth and Kenneth Branagh in the starring roles. In 2014 by kind permission of the estate of the late J L Carr, North Country Theatre will be reviving their 2002 production which was the first stage adaption of this moving story.

A Month in the Country is a story of a fondly remembered rural past , a story of love, loss and recovery.

Though we can’t promise you Colin Firth and Kenneth Branagh you know that with North Country Theatre there’ll be wit, invention and imagination as this moving story comes to life on stage.

Adult – £10

Under 16 – £5.00
