Following the sell-out success of One Million Tiny Plays last year, the LCA and the Village Hall are bringing the Watermill Theatre to back to Longparish village hall on Saturday 15th July 2017 with Nesting by Ellen Robertson. Tickets are now on sale - book soon to ensure you get your ticket for what will be a sell-out show.
Ellen Robertson's poignant new play, Nesting is a funny and moving look at compulsive behaviour and finding love in the most unlikely of places. The play is the same as at the Watermill, the cast is the same but there is no need to go to Newbury to enjoy this entertaining stage show. The Watermill are bringing high quality professional theatre to our doorstep! It's a no brainer really!
Tickets are £12 (£10 for LCA members) and will be available from Monday 10th April. Demand will be high so book then to ensure you get tickets. You can book online here from 10th April
If you aren't able to do online booking please call our Box Office on 01264 720459. The show is suitable for children over 12 and we will do a special price of £6 each.

there is an odd attraction between this pair. Fascinated by Linda and her decision to live her life surrounded by
paraphernalia Jonathan offers to help her sort the flat out and against her better instincts Linda takes him up on the
What ensues is the most unlikely of romances, undeterred by their differences the pair find an odd kind of safety in
each other until one day Jonathan makes a huge mistake. Having copied Linda’s keys he sneaks into her house
desperate to surprise her with a beautiful presented home, little does he realise that what Linda will really see is a
man who, rather than giving her a new lease of life has stolen her old one....
