A DRAMATIC tale of human survival by Frank McGuiness is the fourth play from the Summerseat Players this season.

Garyk Barnett directs Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me at Ramsbottom’s Theatre Royal for one week from Saturday, March 20.

The play is based on the release of British journalist John McCarthy and Irish teacher Brian Keenan.

They were held hostage together for several years by the Islamic Jihad in the Lebanon and the play tells of their battle to survive the mental and physical pressures that built up during their imprisonment.

Tickets are available from the Smithy Street venue or by calling the box office on 01706 826760.
