the Exmouth Players will be celebrating the 100th aniversary of R F Delderfield by putting on a production of his gentle war time comedy, Worm’s Eye View, at the Blackmore Theatre.

Rehearsals are well underway for this great comedy showing at the Blackmore from Monday, June 11 until Saturday, June 16, starting at 7.30pm.

Worm’s Eye View takes place in Albert House, the residence of the Bounty’s at Sandcombe, in the winter of 1942-43.

The family of Mr and Mrs Bounty, their young daughter Bella and Mrs Bounty’s son Sydney from a previous marriage, have reluctantly accepted that five RAF recruits are to be billeted with the family.

Mrs Bounty keeps a watchful and protective eye on her daughter Bella; no recruit from the forces will be good enough for her.

Mr Bounty is an easy going chap and tries to make the recruits welcome - not an easy task with such a wife!

Mrs Bounty’s son Sydney Spooner has delusions of grandeur as a minor civil servant, he is quite sure that his position at the town hall will prevent him receiving his call-up papers!

The family’s, long suffering maid has realised that she would probably enjoy a life in the forces as she gets to know the Royal Air Force recruits.

So, will Cupid’s little arrow hit the mark for two young sweethearts?

Tickets £7 are available from the ticket line on 07905 761485 or from the kiosk in the Magnolia centre from June 4, 10am-2pm.
