Circus of Desertion, an original play written especially for the Stroud Theatre Festival by T D Presland, will be performed at the Cotswold Playhouse from 17th – 19th February at 7.30 pm.
Tickets (£12) available from www.cotswoldplayhouse.co.uk or on the door.
“Stroud’s Hexagon Theatre Company is delighted that the play is now going to get an airing, following the disappointment when it had to be cancelled in September, due to a case of Covid,” said Mary Moore.
“Tickets were going well for Circus of Desertion in the Stroud Theatre Festival, so it is hoped that those who planned to see it then will be keen to see the slightly longer version that will be presented at the Cotswold Playhouse.”
