The Accrington Pals
by Peter Whelen.
2 new dates to see this powerful and poignant play at the Bryce in Burneside.
Thursday 4th and Friday 5th September 2014
Tickets £9 / £7 from 07792 777213.
This poignant and harrowing play is set in the early years of the First World War, as the country’s jingoistic optimism starts to wane and the true terror of warfare gradually becomes clear.
It depicts both the experiences of the men at the front and the women who were
left behind to face social changes, deprivation and the lies of propaganda.
While often comic vignettes portray the everyday life of a town bereft of men, the men face the horror that is the Battle of the Somme.
The Accrington Pals portrays the devastating effects of war on a typical Lancashire mill town and the suffering of everyday people.
And....there will be a further performance at
The Lunesdale Hall
in Kirkby Lonsdale as part of their commemoration of the outbreak of WW1 on Sunday 7th September 2014...further details to follow
