There’s plenty of great shows coming up at Louth Playgoers Riverhead Theatre this month.
Churches Together will perform The Hiding Place on Thursday November 20 and Friday November 21 at 7.30pm.
As the Nazi madness swept across Europe, a quiet watchmaker’s family in Holland risked everything for the sake of others, and for the love of Christ.
Despite the danger and threat of discovery, the ten Boom family courageously offered shelter to persecuted Jews during the Nazi occupation of Holland.
Then a trap brought about the family’s arrest. Could God’s love shine through, even in Ravensbruck?
Tickets cost £5.
Then, Jane Austen’s Persuasion, performed by Hotbuckle Theatre Company, takes to the Rverhead stage on Friday November 22 at 7.30pm.
Founded in 2007, Hotbuckle has previously graced the Louth stage with Les Miserables the play and David Copperfield.
The new show is described as: “Beautifully romantic, touchingly funny and often unbearably poignant, Austen’s most personal novel is brought to the stage”
Anne Elliot and Frederick Wentworth were once hopelessly in love. Persuaded by her family that he is not of her standing, she ends their engagement and he leaves for the sea.
Anne soon realises her mistake and spends the next eight years regretting her decision.
The now wealthy Wentworth returns to seek a wife.
Treating Anne with cold indifference, she can only watch as he courts another. But will he ever forgive her?
