Two of Britain's best-loved comic actors will star in a brilliant new show in Bath.

New Tricks star James Bolam and Coronation Street actress Anne Reid will star in FRACKED! this week.

The show is set in an idyllic English village threatened by an energy company intent on drilling for shale gas.

Elizabeth (Reid) is a retired academic who finds herself transformed from an obedient citizen to an angry protestor.

While her grumpy husband Jack (Bolam) longs for a quiet life, Elizabeth soars to fame through social media as she fights to save her village.

But Elizabeth must go up against a group of hard-nosed PR men who are set on persuading villages that fracking is a good thing.

FRACKED! will be at the Theatre Royal Bath, in Sawclose, today and tomorrow (Saturday).

There will be performances at 8pm both nights and a 2.30pm matinee tomorrow.

Tickets, priced £23.50-40.50, are available from 01225 448844 or online via www.theatreroyal.org.uk
