A play based around the infamous assassination which prompted The Great War will be staged in North Somerset this week.

Sarajevo Big Bang will be performed at Clevedon’s Theatre Shop, in Queens Square, on Thursday at 7.30pm.

In 1914 Gavrilo Princip killed Franz Ferdinand, heir to the throne of Austria-Hungary.

Through stories, songs and a cabaret, the cast of three characters take a surprising journey through power struggles and secret machinations to understand how they are all connected to the gunshot.

Maria is a professional storyteller and artist, Staffan a writer of books and plays who brings to life the historical background of the shot and its aftermath, while Eva is a singer, actress and dramatist.

Tickets, priced £12, are available online at www.theatreshop.org.uk or by calling the box office on 03336 663366.
