TALENTED ten to 13 year olds from the Inkberrow Young Players will be staging a ‘World Premiere’ this week of a new comedy play.

It’s also a play that has received support from Andrew Whitley, author of the book ‘Bread Matters, which was described by The Financial Times as ‘the best food book of the year’.

Villager Tim Vale, who is assisting with the show, says: “This is a major project for such a young team, but they are rising to the challenge and I hope they will receive full support from the community.”

Bakers will be performed at Inkberrow Village Hall, Sands Lane, this Friday (March 27) at 7:30pm, and then on Saturday , March 28, at 3:30pm.

The comedy centres around a bakery run by Mary Batch and produces some of the finest bread you will ever taste.

Mary is supported by Bob, George and Anna, all talented, if occasionally argumentative bakers, not to mention Ivana, who cleans the ovens, and Woodstack, who brings news from the world at large and wood for the ovens.

Unfortunately, Mary’s commitment to quality has left the bakery short of dough... the kind of dough that pays the bills.

Her partner, Mick Sponge, tells Mary the business is about to collapse and offers to buy out her share. But it is soon clear that Mick wants to get rid of Mary and use the bakery to further his own plans.

With comic action and great musical numbers, this is a treat for all the family.

Tickets are on sale at the Forge Shop, Inkberrow.
