' No Finer Life'

Graham Harvey, for twenty years the Agricultural Story Editor of The Archers and writer of more than 600 episodes, brings to the stage the true tale of an unlikely Cotswold hero and an enduring romance.

Set in the Oxfordshire countryside at the end of World War Two, rich in tradition and full of vivid, memorable characters. But this is no nostalgic, bucolic ramble.

This is Elizabeth’s story...

What inspires a young Somerset land girl to set 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.

When peace is won, we fight for the land we love”…


The show features new live music from 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.

His TV credits include the title music for French and Saunders (BBC1), Mad About Alice (BBC 1), Rhona (BBC 2), Vanessa’s Real Lives (ITV 1) and How Clean Is Your House? (Channel 4), amongst many others.

“A really nice, gentle production of a lovely story, beautifully told.” LondonTheatre April 2017
