A mischievous comedy will take to the stage in Nailsea as thespians perform their first show of the year.
Nailsea Little Theatre is putting on People - a show by one of the country's favourite contemporary playwrights Alan Bennett.
The play is set in a crumbling stately home whose ageing owner is battling with holes in the roof and a lack of heating.
Bennett takes a thought-provoking look at the National Trust through the play and gives his own provocative view on the state of the country.
Director Vicki Hyde said: "Everyone here's having a great time putting the show together - lovely costumes, a great set and, of course, Bennett's usual gallery of super characters on stage.
