Stamford Shoestring Theatre Company to present The Roses of Eyam by Don Taylor

Stamford Shoestring Theatre Company will present The Roses of Eyam by Don Taylor on Sunday, June 23, at 2pm, at Browne’s Hospital in Broad Street, Stamford.

A cast of 40 actors and musicians will tell the remarkable true story of a 17th Century Derbyshire village stricken with plague through the arrival of an infected box of clothing from London.

The villagers make a heroic decision, persuaded by the present and former Rectors, to prevent its spread by remaining within the village at the certain risk of their own lives.
