The Great War as it was!

What did the men who wrote Peter Pan and Winnie the Pooh make of the First World War?



We present to you a play from J.M.Barrie , another by A.A.Milne, and a third written 100
years ago and premiered by our company last year, in a Music Hall style evening of laughter, singing and reflection.

These plays provide fascinating insights into the experience of war for both the men
fighting and those left at home. Although written 100 years ago the issues of masculinity,
generational difference, loss, fear, hope, pride, and questioning faith in times of darkness,
are as relevant today as ever.

With a mixture of humour and pathos our show is a wonderful way mark our traditional
period of remembrance. Enjoy food before if you like and then sit back and relax, you can
watch the show from your table, which is yours all evening! Laugh, cry and sing along to the old songs that helped to get people through, and hear more about what those living at the time of the Great war went through – direct from the men who lived through it…
