Poignant war play to be performed at Burnham-On-Sea theatre

A play will be performed in Burnham-On-Sea this October marking the centenary of World War 1 and also the withdrawal from Afghanistan.

The production by the acclaimed AsOne Theatre Company it is a poignant mix of stories, music and song that aims to create a surprising take on war from both combatants themselves and their families.

"AsOne has a reputation for excellent and through provoking theatre, their productions have been described as 'breathtaking'," said the theatre's manager Sam Nicol.

"The company will present a gripping new piece of theatre with live music – five incredible stories of families affected by war."

The play has been created using real testimony from people who’ve fought in Afghanistan, waved their child off to fight or discovered a WW1 relative’s diary.

The show will take place on October 17th at 7.30pm and tickets cost £12, £11 and £10. They are on sale now on 01278 784464 to coincide with the anniversary of the start of the Great War on Aug 4th 1914.
