A tale about a world gone mad will be performed in Clevedon, and Times readers can win tickets to see the show.

A moving one-man musical show about loss, hope and the need for positive change will be performed at The Theatre Shop next month.

In April 1942, William Williams steps on a land mine which blows off his toes on his left foot and leaves the edge of his shinbone 'looking like the surface of the moon'.

Upon returning home, he continues life as a butcher - just like his dad did - and at 7pm every night he entertains his children with tales of a world gone mad.

A Little Death is written by Vic Llewellyn, who has worked for Oxford and Sailsbury Playhouse and Bristol Old Vic.

He has also played Vic in Tim Crouch's The Author, which was performed at Royal Court Theatre in London.

Songs in the show are by Bristol musician Kid Carpet, and A Little Death is directed by Tanuja Amarasuriya and Emma Williams.

The stage design is by Shona Reppe, and production is curtsy of Emma Bettridge and Ferment.

A Little Death has been described as a 'compact masterpiece in storytelling' which 'unfolds again and again like origami' by Bristol 24/7.

The show will be performed at Clevedon Theatre Shop, in Triangle Centre, on November 8 at 7.30pm.

Tickets, priced £12, are available at
