Wayside Bride

Date: 22 Jul 2021

The Wayside Chapel under the Reverend Ted Noffs set itself up for those who might not find a place elsewhere to welcome them, and over the years has become a home and haven in a sometimes brutal town.

Alana Valentine’s play is about the quietly revolutionary act of marriage – sometimes in the face of fierce resistance from family, from society, from the church hierarchy. It’s the story of a space where those who didn’t quite fit in to the mainstream could have their walk down the aisle.

A portrait of this city at its raffish, recalcitrant best.

Wayside Bride is presented as part of a repertory season (the same cast, on the same set, in alternating performances of two different plays) alongside Light Shining in Buckinghamshire.

**This production is postponed until 2022**
