Pentabus bring Malcolm Saville to new audience

The Pentabus Theatre Company (working in partnership with the National Trust) have just announced dates for the forthcoming tour of their exciting new production, The Lone Pine Club, by Alice Birch.

The Lone Pine Club is a brand new play, based on the iconic books by Malcolm Saville.  Fans have great expectations for this new production as Alice was the co-winner of the 2014 George Devine Award, winner of the Arts Foundation Award for Playwriting 2014, and was one of the BBC Writersroom 10 for 2014. The tour launches in Shropshire on 18th July, 2015.

Here’s a taste of the Pentabus team explaining the project:

“Our play is called The Lone Pine Club because it’s not an adaptation of one particular book. Rather, it’s a play inspired by and based on the main characters that crop up across the whole series. Our hope is that young people in the audience will go away inspired to do two things – play outside and read the Lone Pine books for themselves.”

“We are a registered charity and are producing this play in order to reach young people with quality theatre. We want to share with them a tale of adventure and daring and empower them to be brave in exploring the countryside on their own. Above all, we want them to have a great time. And in doing so, we hope to bring a new generation of readers to these brilliant books. But we need your help to pull it off…”
