Players and Gentlemen
T254406714Players and Gentlemen
is a delightful, charming and poignant romantic comedy, set in the aftermath of the First World War. The play focuses on a small group of actors who travel around rural England to entertain local villagers. But tensions arise when one of their number is revealed to have been a Conscientious Objector during the war. As the tour progresses, the actors meet a variety of characters who help, hinder and generally cause chaos - including an overly attentive leading man, a grumpy village squire, and a cricket team hiding the secret to a wartime friendship. Will the band of players be able to overcome prejudice and resentment, so that the show can go on? Will the shadow of the Great War finally be lifted? And, of course, will love conquer all?
