 The Rude Mechanical Theatre Co. (Picnics from 6.00pm)

It’s 1940 in a sleepy Sussex village. George, a retired mechanic, receives a letter from the War Office. Magpies gather, hopping on their twiggy legs. ‘What’s this?’ they cackle. Momentous changes are afoot. While above, amidst comic absurdity, a dark and menacing intrigue simmers among the birds. A brand new comedy thriller from The Rudes. Watch out for Inspector Seed, a detective pigeon!

Bring your own chairs, warm clothes, and perhaps a delicious picnic…but watch out for those greedy birds!
