No Finer Life Theatre Production - Saturday 23rd September 2017

Where Ambridge and Hogwarts Meet…

Graham Harvey, writer of more than 600 episodes of the world’s longest running soap, The Archers, and creator of some of the most loved characters and most memorable storylines has teamed up with James Le Lacheur, a star of the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child West End show to create the new play No Finer Life.

No Finer Life the true tale of an unlikely Cotswold hero and an enduring romance. What inspires a young Somerset land girl to set off in search of a best-selling author in the darkest days of war? The production moves between the 1940s and the current day, reflecting that our relationship with the land and issues of national identity, are timeless. The show features new live music performed by award winning composer, Alastair Collingwood, composer of numerous TV and West End scores.

The production of No Finer Life will be gracing the stage at Missenden Abbey on Saturday 23rd September at 6pm followed by a Q&A session with the writer. Missenden Abbey are also offering a pre-show 1940’s themed Afternoon Tea all made from home grown produce from the Walled Garden, between 2pm – 5pm. Tickets cost £15 for a standard ticket to the play or £30 for pre-show Afternoon Tea and the play to follow.
