"God made the country - man made the town" - Virgil (70-19 BC)

By 1914 Kilham Wold Farm - 82 acres of up and down near Driffield, East Yorkshire - had been in Harrison hands for 30 years, taken from a local landowner after unwittingly winning a wager. With war now raging around them, brothers William and Alfred have to face their heritage and tirelessly fight for their family's survival against a rapidly changing world.

From the writer of the international hit One Man, Two Guvnors, Harvest was first performed at the Royal Court in September 2005. For the first time a 6-strong ensemble present this sweeping rural saga, an epic story spanning the 20th century. This darkly entertaining comedy tells the story of one rural family's survival in a changing agricultural landscape, over generations of births, deaths, love and a lifetime of farming.

Now taking bookings for performances from Sept - Nov 2017. For further information, available dates or to book contact Sally Anne Tye on 0115 973 9121 or sally@newperspectives.co.uk.
