CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020, work is underway to re-open safely. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
Written in 1923, this play by the author of Mary Broome, which was such a success last year, is set in a military family on the eve of the outbreak of the First World War. As the war approaches, the family is torn by the differing attitudes to the coming conflict. Conscientious objections to war are not easy principles to espouse at such a time and in such a family. 'Those that we call traitors may be the heroes - the men of conscience and ideals. It's my work to look into men's souls. It's truth I want, not this blatant simplicity. We are to be all one now. What a time! The day of the cheap patriot has come.' Running time: Act 1 1hr 5mins, Act II 45minsPerformers Jonathan Christie, Claudia Elmhirst, Julian Forsyth, David Gooderson, Simon Harrison, Chris Heyward, Miranda Keeling, Joan Moon, Jack Sandle.
