AN UNMISSABLE adaptation of a 1930s classic is coming to the stage at Saffron Walden Town Hall next week.

The Saffron Players will be presenting Cold Comfort Farm at 8pm on Thursday June 11, Friday June 12 and Saturday June 13.

Tickets for the production are now on sale at the Tourist Information Centre in the Market Square and are priced at £6 or £5 for concessions.

Making his directorial debut for the Players, Jonathan Scripps said he was really enjoying the experience of directing this talented cast.

"The play has something for everyone with a full range of different and somewhat strange characters which will have you in stitches," he said.

This adaptation of the tongue-in-cheek rural novel by Stella Gibbons sees orphan Flora Poste move to Howling in Sussex to stay with her eccentric relatives on Cold Comfort Farm.

Packed with unforgettable characters from the mad grandmother Ada Doom to the poetic Elfine, this play will have you gripped from the start.
