Set in 1942, this bittersweet tale of innocence, hatred and compassion explores a young boy's coming of age in a world turned upside down by the ravages of war. The play follows the antics of a childhood gang of boys - the Rat Wood Rats. In the shadow of the war, the gang explores both the familiar, as they scrump turnips and play spies, and the more sinister as they befriend a lonely evacuee, discover an Italian prisoner of war and become involved in a sinister plot that will prove life-changing for them all. The gang of four includes the autobiographical character of Jimmy, a recurring element in all of Barry Heath's plays.Performers Michael Brophy, Stephen Finegold, Nicholas Gallagher, Andrew Greenough, Joseph Traynor, Clare Wilkie, Mark Whiteley.
