image002100 years ago, as war raged abroad, a visit to the Music Hall helped raise the spirits of those at home, missing their loved ones.
Written during one of the most troubling times our country has seen, the music and plays of the time give us a fascinating insight into the experience of WW1, for both the men at the front and the men and women left at home.
This special performance features two short plays from iconic writers of the era, A.A.Milne (best known for Winnie-the-Pooh) and J.M.Barrie (best known for Peter Pan), accompanied by a live string ensemble from Brighton Youth Music playing classic songs including ‘It’s A Long Way To Tipperary’ and ‘Take Me Back To Dear Old Blighty’.
This exciting event, presented by Gateways To The First World War in association with Threadbare Theatre Company, sees both performers and audience on the stage of Theatre Royal Brighton, with a themed refreshments bar in the wings and an opportunity to view some of Theatre Royal Brighton’s archive material in the dressing rooms.
