A COMEDY play tackling the thorny issue of over-development of housing is coming to the area later this month.

The Frozen Roman tells the story of a group of villagers who regard plans for a new building development as a threat to their quiet way of life.

The discovery of an ancient Roman burial site could throw them a lifeline if they can manage to authenticate it.

Kate Bramley's play is being performed by Badapple Theatre Company and stars Emma Bright, Jack Alexander and Jack Wagman.

It will be at Frampton on Severn Village Hall on May 29 and Horton & Little Sodbury Village Hall on May 31.
