AN adaption of Michael Murpurgo’s Farm Boy is coming to the Theatre Royal, Bury St Edmunds.

The work, by the creator of War Horse, follows the changing face of the English countryside through stories told by an old man to his grandson.

Brought to life by New Perspectives Theatre Company – last seen at the Theatre Royal in 2011 with Those Magnificent Men – in a co-production with Scamp Theatre, Farm Boy combines drama, storytelling and original music. A spokesman for the Regency venue said the show follows critically-acclaimed runs at both the 2010 Edinburgh Festival Fringe and the 2011 Brits off Broadway in New York.

Gareth Bennett-Ryan, who was last seen as Dick in 2011’s popular panto Dick Whittington, stars as the Grandson.
