About: No Finer Life

Graham Harvey, for twenty years the Agricultural Story Editor of The Archers and writer of more than 600 episodes, brings to the stage the true tale of an unlikely Cotswold hero and an enduring romance. Set in the Oxfordshire countryside at the end of World War Two, rich in tradition and full of vivid, memorable characters. But this is no nostalgic, bucolic ramble. This is Elizabeth’s story...

What inspires a young Somerset land girl to set off in search of a best selling author in the darkest days of war? The story moves between the 1940s and the current day, reflecting that the love of the countryside and the need to protect it are timeless.

The show features new live music composed and performed by Alastair Collingwood, who has written scores for shows, including Betty in London’s West End, directed by Kathy Burke, and Cora with Dana Gillespie. His TV credits include the title music for French and Saunders, Mad About Alice, Rhona, and How Clean Is Your House? amongst many others.

Roberta Bellekom is Elizabeth and has recently appeared as Miranda in The Tempest and in productions of Animal Farm, Waiting for Godot, and One Way. She is a veteran of the Edinburgh Fringe including The Importance of Muffins and her acclaimed one-woman show, Last Petal Falling.

Graham Harvey will be taking part in an after-show conversation after every performance – included in the ticket price – where he will discuss the issues in the play...and all things Ambridge
