A gripping drama, The Accrington Pals by Peter Whelan. is based upon the real live events of the first two years of the Great War. Set in Accrington, Lancashire, a working mill town, the play follows the lives of the young men who signed up and the women they left behind. With the men called to fight, significant changes begin to take effect: the women begin to adopt new roles in society and the workplace, and an atmosphere of social revolution mingles with the desperation of War time living.
Apollo Productions are staging this production as part of their charity church tour. Each production is performed in remembrance of all those men who died in the service of their county, the women who struggled at home and even gave their lives in the munitions factories, and those brave families who still serve and live the military life now. For them, Apollo Productions are fundraising in aid of four Armed Forces charities: Hounds for Heroes, Little Troopers, BLESMA and Combat Stress.
All Saints’ Church Westbury will be hosting The Accrington Pals on Friday 9 November at 7pm.
Tickets are £8 and available from Davies on Edward Street or Ticket Source
