The fictional war stories written by Budleigh Salterton's Joyce Dennys is being bought to live in a new theatre show.

Taking place at Corpus Playroom, 6 St Edward's Passage, Cambridge from Wednesday July 24 to Saturday July 27.

Henrietta Brown was a writer and artist before the war intervened and is perhaps a bit too bohemian for a doctor’s wife living in a sleepy seaside town. The new theatre show is called Henrietta's War, based on the books.

The synopsis for the show said: "Determined to ‘do her bit’ for the war effort Henrietta throws herself into helping her husband and friends, getting into all sorts of scrapes along the way.

"Through the tales she tells of the comings and goings in the little seaside community; the mine which turned out to be a barrel, the spy that was not, and the tremulous excitement inspired by a packet of raisins, Henrietta takes you back in time to see a funny, affectionate and sometimes moving portrait of a country muddling through on the Home Front."

This is a funny new play based on the books of Joyce Dennys. Ticket prices range from £7.50 to £11.50. Book tickets on the theatre's website.
