Change of Lead Actor in Second Week

After an amazingly successful first sell out week of the our production of “The Return of the Native”, the cast said farewell to Toby Ingram, a Thomas Hardye school sixth former who has been playing the part of Clym Yeobright, “The Native” of the story.

Director Howard Payton said “ Toby has worked extremely hard and we are very proud that he has been accepted onto a prestigious London drama course. It did mean that he was unavailable for the second week of the run. However, we have been fortunate to secure the services of a local young professional actor Ieuan Jeffcott and he will be playing the part of Clym at Lulworth Cove on Thursday 16th and Friday 17th July and at Watercombe House for the final night on Saturday 18th July.”

Ieuan lives in Portesham and went to school at Budmouth College. He graduated at Arts University Bournemouth with a BA Acting in 2014. He has been busy since graduation, creating the role of Bob in AsOne Theatre Production “ Passion” and has just returned from Italy where he toured in productions for Lingue Senza Frontiere.
