Tickenham Drama Group will perform Habeas Corpus at the village hall, in Clevedon Road, from November 20-23 at 7.30pm.

Set in Arthur Wicksteeds' home in Brighton's Hove, all should be peace and calm but the arrival of two guests causes all sorts of mayhem.

Philandering, hypocrisy, blackmail, misunderstanding and plotting follow, handled with Bennett's usual dexterity and wit.

Experienced and respected director, Felicity Peries, has put together a cast, which includes Phil Kingsley-Jones, who takes on the Alec Guiness role of Mr Wiksteeds.

His goings-on do not escape the attention of Mrs Wicksteed, played by Becky Kingsley-Jones and Andy Davies, who plays Mr Shanks.

Tickets, priced £12, are available on 07523 373070 or at www.tickenhamdrama.org.uk
