The National Trust’s Clumber Park hosts an open-air production of “The Lady’s Not For Burning” for four days next week.

Leaving the Shakespearean theme behind for the first time in 10 years, The Clumber Players will entertain visitors with Christopher Fry’s classic production.

This romantic comedy revolves around Thomas, a discharged soldier who wishes to be hanged and a young woman called Jennet who is accused of witchcraft, but wishes to live. Annoyed that officials oppose his request believing he is not guilty, Thomas can do nothing. But for Jennet, the question of her hanging is left until morning. However, will Thomas, who has fallen helplessly in love with Jennet put off his hanging and run away with her?

Events Co-ordinator, Stephen Prescott said that “The Clumber Players never fail to produce a brilliant show and this will be no exception. This comedy is sure to entertain the whole family, so sit back and enjoy the show.”
