STARS of the BBC sitcom The Good Life have wished an upcoming stage adaptation in Penarth good luck.

Penarth Operatic and Dramatic Society (PODS) will be performing an adaptation of the 1970s TV comedy at the Paget Rooms from October 12, until October 15.

They will be the first amateur theatre company to perform the adaptation in Wales.

Now two of the show's original stars have sent hand written notes to offer their support.

Dame Penelope Keith, who played Margo Leadbetter, said in her note: "Please convey my good wishes to everyone in PODS. I hope the show goes well.”

Felicity Kendal, who portrayed Barbara Good, simply wrote: "Good luck with the show."

PODS publicity officer, Peter Knowles, said "As a teenager growing up in the 70’s I loved The Good Life and I used to eagerly await each week’s new episode.

"I wrote to the BBC asking if they could send me autographs from the cast but sadly nothing ever arrived.

"But more than forty years on I now have hand written notes from two of them.

"Sadly Richard Briers who played Tom Good and Paul Eddington who played Jerry Leadbetter are no longer with us but it would be lovely to think that they too would have sent their good wishes to PODS."

Tickets for the performance can be bought here.
