On Wednesday 10th October at 7.30pm Norton Quaker Meeting, (Friends Meeting House, 50 The Green, Norton, Stockton-on-Tees, TS20 1DY) will be hosting a performance of a one act play 'One of That Despised People' which will be performed by the Quaker Theatre Company. Tickets cost £3 and can be bought at the door.

The play examines the depth of faith in a future world which is not only suspicious of all churches but views them with open hostility.

Writer and performer Alan Avery says that the play challenges all people of faith, not just Quakers. In an increasingly sceptical age, how far would we be prepared to suffer, both mentally and physically to stand up for what we believe or would the pressures the state can put on individuals make us retreat into compromise and denial. The play is not suitable for anyone under sixteen.

The play is set in the future, after our time of economic turmoil the region is then beset by actual military strife.

There are two actors, Alan Avery who also wrote the play and Joanna Bond (who played Annie Kelly in Emmerdale).

Further details are available from Michael Piercy at Norton Quaker Meeting, 01429 284694 or Alan Avery at the Quaker Theatre Company, 01751 474043       www.quakertheatrecompany.co.uk
