Behind the Scenes: 'A Fenland Farce'.


The Isle of Ely Arts Festival Players return this year with ‘a wonderfully written local farce’.

“Behind the Scenes tells the story of a small Fen village theatre group putting on a pantomime,” say the group.

“Drawing on the author’s experience in amateur dramatics, and her familiarity with pantomime, the result is a touching comedy that makes audiences both laugh and cry.

“Despite all the dramas and crises, the show must go on.”

The performances take place on the following dates:

Friday 16 June

The Beeches, Isleham

Saturday 17 June

Wicken Village Hall

Friday 23 June

Little Downham Village Hall

Saturday 24 June

Witcham Village Hall

Tickets cost £5 each and are available on the door or online via
