Matt Hartley said: "I’m delighted to be asked to write a play for Pentabus. I grew up in a small village in the Peak District and I wanted to write a play that reflected what it’s like to grow up in rural communities and how villages have changed."

Tickets for the show, which is suitable for ages fourteen and above, are available directly from the library and can be booked either in person or via email.

Elizabeth added: "At Pentabus we are committed to making plays about rural issues and taking them directly to affected communities.

"I’m excited that these audiences will see our cast transform through the different time periods before their eyes. Everyone knows someone like Elsie and “Here I Belong” will be an uplifting and entertaining piece of theatre for people of all ages."
