Archers story editor brings his touring play to Tarporley on 27 February

For one night only, one of the main writers behind Radio Four’s famed series about country life is bringing his new play to Tarporley Community Hall on 27th February 2018 at 7.30pm.
Graham Harvey, for twenty years the Agricultural Story Editor of The Archers and writer of more than 600 episodes, has brought to the stage the true tale of an unlikely Cotswold hero and an enduring romance.
‘No Finer Life’ is set in the Oxfordshire countryside at the end of World War Two, rich in tradition and full of vivid, memorable characters. The story follows a young Somerset land girl as she sets off in search of a best selling author in the darkest days of war.
The story moves between the 1940s and the current day, reflecting that the love of the countryside, the need to protect it and issues of national identity, are timeless.
Graham Harvey will be taking part in an after-show conversation – included in the ticket price -where he will discuss the issues in the play…and of course all things Ambridge!
The central character Elizabeth is played by Rebecca Bailey and the show is directed by James Le Lacheur, who has recently spent a year in London’s West End in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
The show features new live music composed and performed by Alastair Collingwood, who has written scores for numerous theatre shows, including Betty in London’s West End, directed by Kathy Burke, and Cora with Dana Gillespie, which also toured the USA.
The show is being brought to Tarporley with the support of the Cheshire Branch of the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) and tickets can be purchased online directly from the production's website ( or from the CPRE Cheshire office (at and will also include a glass of complimentary wine during the interval.
