Dramatist Barney Norris brings new play The Band Back Together to the Farnham Maltings on March 8 and 9 at 7.30pm.

Joe, Ross and Ellie used to be in a band. They were pretty good too, making waves in pubs and clubs. They even had a song on Radio 2. But that was all a decade ago and the songs, stories and secrets are long buried. Until now.

Drawn back together for one night to play a benefit gig in their home town, three former bandmates find a community reeling from a poisoning and a pandemic.

Will the old songs still work their magic? And just how far has time thrown these friends from their younger selves?

As showtime draws nearer, the friends come face to face with the memories of their youth. Feeling lost in the community they once called home, they must confront the past in order to make sense of the future.

Barney Norris said: “This is my first play in six years. I’ve written a new play because I found I had something I really wanted to share: the feeling of coming to the end of youth, of adult life now being a longer period than childhood, a moment which has arrived for my generation.”

Tickets £10 (£8 members, £5 students) on 01252 745444.
