THE COURSE of true love never did run smooth but three political rivals are putting aside their differences to appear in a Shakespeare classic.
Justin Kerridge, Conservative Stratford District councillor for Sambourne, Clive Rickhards, Lib Dem Warwickshire County councillor for Studley and Wayne Bates, who is contesting the Studley district council seat for Labour, are all appearing in a shortened version of A Midsummer Night's Dream.
It takes place on Sambourne village green on Sunday (April 27) at 4pm and is free to watch although donations will be requested for charity.
The Sambourne Village Association annually stages a Shakespeare play and it was while watching Mr Kerridge and Mr Bates in last year's performance they approached Mr Rickhards, a former professional actor, to appear in this year's production.
Mr Rickhards said: "There's an unwritten pact we don't talk about the politics at least until the play is over, I expect then there will be an exchange of views."
