A PLAY is being staged at the Fisher Theatre at Bungay by local students in advance of its debut at the world-renowned Edinburgh Festival fringe.

No Tomatoes, on Sunday at 7.30pm, is presented by the Ginger Tom Theatre Company and Bungay High School A-level drama students.

It is a comedy about love, lies and football stickers - a brand new play written by Jim Blythe, of Spooky Kid Productions, and directed by Dani Doughty. In Edinburgh it will be performed at Space 2 on August 6-7 and 10-14.

In the situation comedy, Simon, played by Alex Harvey-Sporle, runs the worst pub in the county and he has certificates to prove it. Don't ask how he raises money for the local children's home. Then there is Will (Lewis Chane), an incurable romantic looking for Ms Right to sweep him off his feet. Finally, there's Jon (Rory Duckett), a hopeless womaniser looking for Ms Right-Now to sweep him off to bed. Jon's wife, Holly (Holly Revell/Alice Neale), finds this quite irritating - as does Jon's girlfriend, Susan (Phoenix Gower). Meanwhile, Vicki (Katie Gooderham) is trying to extricate herself from a relationship with Will after her weekend away. It all makes for a light-hearted comedy that will bring a smile to the end of a busy festival day or the beginning of a festival evening.

Ginger Tom Theatre Company was formed in 2009 to perform Rapture at last year's Fringe. Most of the cast have just finished performing Little Shop of Horrors at the high school.

The show lasts 50 minutes and tickets at the Fisher are £5.

At the Fisher this evening the Yakety Yak Theatre Company's production of Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights continues, at 7.30pm. It tells the tempestuous story of free-spirited Catherine and dark, brooding Heathcliff, and what happens when Catherine rejects his love and marries another, as Heathcliff seeks his revenge. Tickets are £10 (£8 concessions).

Tickets for all events at the Fisher are available through the box office on 01986 897130, or via the website www.fishertheatre.org
