Event Information


A poignant tale of love and loss, duty and sacrifice to Commemorate the centenary of the end of World War One

During WW1, The Battle of Aubers Ridge cost the town of Northampton dearly as its menfolk were brutally sacrificed in a futile engagement.

This powerful and gripping performance transports you to 1914 and the world of the men, women and families who were affected. Through their journey from the sunny and optimistic spring of 1914 to its inevitable, awful outcome, you will come to know them, love them and respect them, before you have no choice but to mourn those who perished, and pity those who were left behind.

Originally commissioned the the Royal & Derngate Theatre, Northampton
