Bardolph’s Box is the opening show of Cheshire Rural Touring Arts’ spring season of touring, taking professional arts events to rural venues and libraries across the county from March until July this year.

Unity Theatre’s artistic director, Matthew Linley, said: “We’re all really excited to be working alongside Up The Road Theatre to help little Bardolph come into the world - or rather into a library, school, arts venue or community hall near you.

“Developing Bardolph’s Box is very much part of our ongoing commitment to making great work for under 12s and their families.”
