|The Accrington Pals|
|By Peter Whelan|
The play looks at both the terrifying experiences of the men at the front in the first world war and the women who were left behind to face social changes, deprivation and the lies of propaganda. While often comic vignettes portray the everyday life of a town denuded of men, the men face the terror that is the Battle of the Somme. This compassionate play portrays the devastating effects of war on a typical Lancashire mill town and the suffering of everyday people.
