Students at Sibford School will be performing The Accrington Pals as part of the school’s activities to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Armistice.
Written in 1982 by Peter Whelan, the play is set in Accrington during the first few years of the World War I and questions peoples morality and attitudes to war. Unlike most other war-related pieces of theatre, The Accrington Pals not only focuses on the men fighting, but also on the women left behind and their viewpoints and struggles as they adjust to life without their fathers, husbands, brothers or sweethearts.
Performances will take place on Thursday 8 November and Friday 9 November. Tickets cost £8 Adult and £6 Concession (under 18 & over 60) and are available from the school reception or on-line from www.skiddle.com (booking fee applies).
