    THE Field Theatre Group in Littleport launches its new community film
    Common Ground. The project has been three years in the planning and
    features a cast of more than 50 people, many of whom have never acted before.
    The film, which is directed, filmed and produced by Deborah Curtis, Jennifer Stevens
    and Peter Harmer, focuses on Fenland life at the turn of the last century and is
    the result of painstaking research and local story gathering. Common Ground
    has been filmed over eight months in various locations in Littleport and Wicken Fen.
    Director Deborah Curtis said: “We have been delighted with the response
    to this film project. We have been so lucky to have had so many people
    coming forward to take part. Our cast and crew have carried this project forward
    on a wave of good humour, enthusiasm and professionalism.

    ”The Field Theatre Group is hosting a weekend of screenings and a 
    photographic exhibition at Littleport Village Hall.
    The event is part of
    the 2012 Open Festivals Weekend and
    the village hall will be
    transformed into a cinema for the occasion.
    INFO: Tickets are
    available in advance from
    JH Adams in Main Street, Littleport for £5/£3

    and also on the door for the July 25 performance.
