The range on offer at the TheatreFest is hugely varied, from illusionists to drama – but many are likely to raise a laugh or two, including Bed and Breakfast by Hot Ice Theatre, written and performed by Katharine Markwick.

Welcome to Upper Crevice… near to Lower Crevice… which is close to nowhere. You are guests at Hive Corner, Upper Crevice's finest Bed & Breakfast. Carol Carpenter is your hostess. She loves to talk.

This comic tour through the seamy underside of a rural idyll is playing on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Baptist Hall in Boutport Street.
