A MYSTERIOUS land revolving around board games is the subject of a school play being performed in Ashdon this evening.

Children from years three to six at Ashdon Primary School are all taking part in the production of The Seven-Sided Dice, a play about four children who are transported to a magical land.

The school's Judy Patson said: "The 58 children involved have been rehearsing for the last three weeks and have really enjoyed themselves.

"The play features music and dance, and the children have all got involved, even creating the sets."

The play is about a group of four children who find an injured seagull and take it home to look after it.

The next day they wake to discover that the bird has gone, and in its place are some seven-sided dice.

The children play a game of Snakes and Ladders with the dice, and find themselves transported to the Land of Lady Fortune.

Here they must beat Lady Fortune at her own games to escape back to reality.
