A fun performance will take centre stage at Central Library next week.

Wanderlust is a play devised by three women after they travelled around the United Kingdom collecting stories.

The women used their travels to uncover stories about the country, which they then used to form the comedy show. Kristy Guest hitch-hiked her way around Nottinghamshire on mobile libraries, while Hannah Stone hijacked passers-by in Norfolk as they both collected stories of epic journeys, risk-taking adventure and life-changing circumstances.

Fellow wanderer Ria Ashcroft was also invited into nursing homes to chat with the residents and help them create stories, which led her to unravel her own family story of a hereditary disease.

All three women returned with their different stories, some about life-changing moments, funny surprises and even one about getting lost in the jungle.

The three are now taking their play around the country, travelling to theatres and libraries to tell their stories. Wanderlust weaves stories together using humour, verbatim and beautiful live music to take the audience on an uplifting journey.

Tickets are available to see Wanderlust at Central Library on Wednesday costing £6 (£5 for library members), and can be booked by calling 478080.
