The Accrington Pals (2012)

Sep 8th to 15th 2012

Written by Peter Whelan

Directed by Pete Bagley

This lyrical, absorbing play is set in Accrington during 1914-16. The "Pals" are the men from the local volunteer battalion who march high-spiritedly off to the Great War with their experiences in the trenches contrasted with those of the women left behind adapting to new patterns of life and drawing together in the face of deprivation. At times funny, at times sad, the play paints a moving and powerful picture of the changes in civilian life during wartime.
