A Scandinavian theatre company will bring their unique take on a famous assassination to Clevedon.

Sarajevo Big Bang will be performed at The Theatre Shop, in Queens Square, on Thursday at 7.30pm.

In 1914 Gavrilo Princip killed Franz Ferdinand, heir to the throne of Austria-Hungary.

Through stories, songs and a cabaret, the cast of three characters take a surprising journey through power struggles and secret machinations to understand how they are all connected to the gunshot which started The Great War.

Maria is a professional storyteller and artist, Staffan a writer of books and plays who brings to life the historical background of the shot and its aftermath, while Eva is a singer, actress and dramatist.

Tickets, priced £12, are available at or on 03336 663366.
