George, a retired mechanic, receives a letter from the War Office. Magpies gather, hopping on their twiggy legs. ‘What’s this?’ they cackle. Momentous changes are afoot. While above, amidst comic absurdity, a dark and menacing intrigue simmers among the birds. Watch out for Inspector Seed, a pigeon. Tickets available online at www.therudemechanicaltheatre.co.uk. Further information - 01323-501260 £15 with a range of concessions. Gates open at 6pm bring a picnic, blanket and comfortable chair. Performance starts at 7.15pm.
