LOCAL drama group Matchbox Theatre Company present Thornton Wilder's 'Our Town' on 21, 22, 23 October at Rainhill Village Hall, Weaver Avenue.

'Our Town' portrays life in a small New England town in the early years of the twentieth century and is both funny and touching. The American classic is set in the small village of Grover Corners and the drama of life is compellingly depicted through the story of two families.

Matchbox Theatre Company has previously performed at The Citadel in St Helens and many other local venues.

Performances start at 7.30pm and tickets priced £4/£3.50 are available from Rainhill Village Hall on 0151 430 9338, or telephone 0151 426 5299.
