CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
The story tells of Johnny joining up to go to World War One in spite of his love for peace, leaving behind his true love, Minny Belle in their rural town. Niave and idealistic, Johnny baffles the recruiters and commanders, but still winds up fighting in Europe, where he manages to halt the war temporarily by attacking a Generals meeting with Laughing Gas. When the leaders come to their senses, the war continues and Johnny is committed to an asylum where he is held for ten years. Meanwhile Minny Belle had married the dreary town capitalist. Johnny is released and becomes a toy maker, still trying to spread peace in an increasingly war like society.Performers Max Gold (Johnny Johnson), Lauren Ward (Minnie Belle), David Birrel (Dr McBray), Gay Soper (Aggie), Richard Stemp (Anguish), Myra Sands (Private Goldberger), Valerie Cutko (Nurse), Valda Aviks (Statue of Liberty), christian Walker (Sniper).
