Live Theatre - Pals - Friday, 2nd November, 8pm

on Fri, 02/11/2018 - 7:00pm

Live Theatre - Pals
Friday 2 November
Bar open from 7.00pm
£12 tickets
Box Office: 01235 763 456

Inspired by real war diaries, Pals is an amusing and touching piece of theatre set during the first years of The Great War. 

This poignant stroy follows Stan, George and Joe as enthusiastic pals who volunteer to join Kitchener's new army.

Their experience of life on the western front is a stark contrast to what was promised by the Officers signing them up: "back before Christmas, they said!"

Embarrassing medicals, French girls, lice, rats and shrapnel wait for them but their strong friendship and sense of humour will enable these pals to stick together through it all.
