PENTABUS Theatre is bringing its play, Here I Belong by Matt Hartley, to Clun Memorial Hall on Saturday.

Here I Belong celebrates village life, companionship and community while highlighting the challenges faced by people in rural areas.

Over six decades from 1953 to 2016 Elsie’s life, relationships and the right to grow old in her own home will be played out on stage.Performed in the intimate setting of a village hall, the action happens all around you. As the play moves through time the décor and actors transform, they will take the audience on a funny and moving journey through 60 years of village life.Elsie is played by Melanie McHugh whose recent theatre work includes The Country Girls at the Minerva Theatre, Chichester.

“Working on this magical story and these wonderful characters is made only more special by the brilliance of the Pentabus team - audiences will be in for a treat when Here I Belong hits the road,” said Melanie McHugh

She is joined by Nathalie Barclay who returns to play four different characters in Elsie’s life. Her stage credits include The Class Ceiling at Southwark Playhouse, Positive at Park Theatre and Chapter 2 at the New Diorama
