About the Show/Event

The Wipers Times
Information for The Wipers Times at Palace Theatre, Westcliff-on-Sea (Play). In a bombed out building during the First World War in the French town of Ypres, two officers discover a printing press and create a newspaper for the troops. Far from being a sombre journal about life in the trenches they produced a resolutely cheerful, subversive and very funny newspaper designed to lift the spirits of the men on the frontline. Defying enemy bombardment, gas attacks and the disapproval of many of the top Brass, The Wipers Times rolled off the press for two years and was an extraordinary tribute to the resilience of the human spirit in the face of overwhelming adversity.
Approximate runtime 122minutes (including any interval).
Performers Kevin Brewer (Henderson), James Dutton (Roberts), George Kemp (Pearson), Jake Morgan (Barnes), Dan Tetsell (General Mitford).
Author Ian Hislop. Author Nick Newman. Producer The Watermill. Director Caroline Leslie. Design Dora Schweitzer. Lighting James Smith. Sound Steve Mayo. Music Nick Green. Musical Director Paul Herbert.

Overall: 5.00
Chris Turner (16May17): We have seen it twice at the Watermill, it was Brilliant, much better than the T.V.play. Ian Hislop came 5 times to see it. Well worth finding your nearest theatre for a very good night out if you can get seats 5
