PALS a story inspired by war diaries

Pals is an amusing and touching piece of theatre set during the first years of the Great War. This poignant story follows Stan, George and Joe as enthusiastic pals who volunteer to join Kitchener's new army. Their experience of life on the western front is a stark contrast to what was promised by the officers signing them up: "Back before Christmas, they said."

Embarrassing medicals, French girls, lice, rats and shrapnel wait for them but their strong friendship and sense of humour will enable these pals to stick together through it all.

Pals uses a broken time line going back and forth with the memories of the men. These Pals use their humour to break the boredom in the trenches. Pals follows the signing up period of the excited civilian men which is sometimes a little embarrassing for them. A poignant story of true friendship. Songs of the time and poems pulls you into the lives of the men in the trenches.

The Old Bakery offers a true timeless, immersive and atmospheric backdrop to this show.
