Our Last Production
In Spring 2022, Redlynch Players and Fordingbridge Players reunited to perform the world premiere of Lark on the Wing, a captivating and charming portrayal of the life of Flora Thompson.
Flora Thompson was born in Juniper Hill, Oxfordshire in 1876. Her childhood was lived in poverty and she received a meagre education. Despite this uninspiring start, she wrote the world-acclaimed trilogy, Lark Rise to Candleford, which is still in print today.
“..Ron Perry’s Lark On The Wing reveals more by taking us on a journey through her life, conjuring up rich imagery, whimsical and peculiar characters, tragedy and joy. Most notably, he also gives high praise and a fresh voice to the woman who, against great odds, was determined to write her stories and poems and to have them published..” – Scene One Plus
“Another little gem from these enterprising drama companies.” – Lesley Bates
“..I thought that it was a magical production that was totally enthralling, very entertaining and a wonderful history lesson. It was very well put together with lots of humour and emotion. I was very moved when Flora spoke about the loss of her brother in France during WW1..” – NODA
“…the standard was very high and the play was produced so beautifully. The acting was amazing, as was the live music, lighting, front of house staff with their matching clothing, the backdrop, everything….! I have to admit that I shed tears, so moving it was..”
“You have created a masterpiece of social history..”
