A PLAY starring two actors who have appeared on the TV giant soap Emmerdale, is coming to the Towngate.

Natasha Gray (who played Elsa Chappel) and Kevin Pallister (who played Graham Clark) will be appearing in Round and Round the Garden, a play by Alan Ayckbourn.

It takes place this coming Thursday, March 24 and Friday March 25, at 7.30pm.

The play follows Norman, his in-laws and the local vet over one summer weekend in a Sussex country house.

Assistant Librarian Norman is intent on making all the women in his life happy – attempting to seduce his sister-in-law Annie, charm his brother’s wife Sarah and still keep his own wife, Ruth, happy.

Oblivious to the repercussions of his actions, Norman leaves a trail of havoc, misunderstandings and comedy consequences.
