A theatre group which has been running for more than 65 years has again taken to the stage, this time with a comedy.

The Saxlingham Players have been working hard in rehearsals for their latest production, Joking Apart, which opened on April 5

Released in 1978 the play was written by English playwright Alan Ayckbourn.

It was written in response to comments that Ayckbourn only ever wrote about unhappy couples.

But it is not too late to catch what director Kathryn Dobbins called the story of 'a middle class suburban couple who lead the perfect life - but inadvertently ruin the lives of everyone around them' - as tickets are available on the door for performances tonight (April 6), tomorrow, and Saturday. Ms Dobbins added: 'Come along to support the Players as a thriving village group with a long history.
