Agnes & Walter: A Little Love Story caused quite a buzz at last year's Edinburgh Fringe Festival and will be staged at Frome's Merlin Theatre on November 10.

It is the first full-length production by Smith dancetheatre, a new dance company based in Norwich.

Artistic director, Neil Paris, was a core member of Ireland's Fabulous Beast Dance Theatre from 2003 to 2010.

Crossing boundaries of dance and theatre, Agnes & Walter: A Little Love Story, combines physical and visual performance styles including dance, physical theatre, mime, clowning, a soundtrack of pre-recorded popular songs and cinematic scores sung live.

A love story of long-term commitment, secret desires, day-dreaming and a garden shed, Agnes and Walter is inspired by James Thurber's classic story, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, and features an exceptional cast that spans the generations.

Tickets cost £14.
