For their autumn production The Longton Players present ‘The Potting Shed’, a powerful psychological drama written by Graham Greene.

The Potting Shed tells of an estranged son who desperately searches for the missing childhood memories that left him rejected by his atheist father, alienated from his family and alone in the world.

After a generation of denial, will the family ever end their silence on what happened in the potting shed all those years ago?

The play is full of engaging characters and a few twists and turns to keep everybody guessing!

Sir Cliff Richard took the lead role in a Sadlers Wells production of the play in 1971 and other theatrical luminaries who have appeared in it include Dame Sybil Thorndyke, Sir John Gielgud, Anna Massey and Paul Schofield.

The Potting Shed is at Longton Village Hall from Thursday October 9 to Saturday October 11. Doors 7.30pm. Tickets £7.
