Relatively Speaking, directed by Robin Case, will be performed at the Soulton Hall outdoor theatre in Wem from May 20 to 23, and will not only give Salopians a rare chance to see a show, but give actors a much needed financial boost.

The cast for the witty garden comedy is made up of Shrewsbury's Adrian Monahan and Rosie Byrd of Bishop's Castle, as well as Londoners Victoria Porter and Tom Thornhill.

Director, Robin, is taking no fee for the show, and profits will be shared between the actors, so he is keen for as many people to attend as possible.

He said: "Last year in lockdown, Tim Ashton at Soulton Hall built the open air theatre to help give actors a chance to make some money. I thought I would love to help and provide some work for struggling actors.

"I've got a terrific cast. It's a witty, garden comedy which is just right for the open air theatre. It works by a series of misunderstandings that are comic.

"It will be the first opportunity for a lot of people to get out and see a live performance. It should be fun for all the family."

Performances will be at 2pm and 6pm each day. Tickets cost £20 each or four for £60. To buy tickets, visit soultonhall.co.uk
