- Credit: Archant
The story of an American airman during the Second World War who is welcomed by a farming family will be brought to life at a north Norfolk arts hub.
Parachute is being performed at the Atrium Theatre on Spenser Avenue, North Walsham, on Friday April 3 at 7.30pm.
It has been devised by Rob John from Norfolk-based professional theatre company fEAST, which created the sell-out Canada Boys play.
Parachutue is set in 1942 during wartime Norfolk and explores the relationship between 2nd Lt Jimmy Finch, a navigator from a B24 bomber, and members of the Cubitt family at Box Farm.
The play is funny, moving and thought-provoking and features Norfolk voices, locations and stories from the region's history.
