SUNDAY, STROUD: Allotments have never been so popular and a new show celebrating this horticultural passion comes to Rodborough village hall this weekend.
Losing The Plot is described as a tale of love, life and allotments from Mikron Theatre Company and it is an outdoor production.
Set on Thistledale allotments, the show tells the stories of the gardeners, a rag-bag bunch of diggers and dreamers.
Strong personalities frequently clash over the best treatment for mealy bugs, and the annual Heaviest and Longest competition is always a time when old feuds and new flirtations threaten to undermine the fragile peace.

Marianne McNamara of Mikron said: "Losing The Plot explores the history of allotments, and how they are thriving these days in a time when self-sufficiency is making a resurgence."
Told in true Mikron style, with a rollicking mix of old music hall tunes and brand new songs, big characters, inventive storytelling, and the odd scarecrow thrown in for good measure, Losing The Plot is a tale of earthy pleasures and pitchforks at dawn.
Tickets are free but people should bring their own seating. The show begins at 1pm.
