The Roses of Eyam

November 2017

As part of its 40th birthday celebrations, Estuary Players goes back to a play from its early years. A cast of 30 portrays the Derbyshire village that cut itself off from the world when the plague came in 1665. The Civil War is strong in memory, the Commonwealth has only just given way to the Monarchy again, and now villagers are dying daily. How does a community cope? This is a play full of drama, humour, compassion and courage.
