The Accrington Pals by Peter Whelan
6th - 10th November

Directed by Alan Parkinson

Skipton Little Theatre is pleased to announce the second production in our regular season of plays.

This lyrical, absorbing play is set in Accrington during 1914-16. The "Pals" are the men from the local volunteer battalion who march high-spiritedly off to the Great War with their experiences in the trenches contrasted with those of the women left behind. At times funny, at times sad, it paints a moving and powerful picture of the changes in civilian life during wartime.

In a preface to the play, Whelan, keen to write about working-class women during the war, noted: "For me this was like looking through a pinhole into the past and finding a whole vista of humanity revealed in a very unexpected way.

"These mothers, wives, daughters and lovers of the Pals didn't knuckle under sheepishly to authority in the way I had supposed."

Starts at 7.30pm. Doors open 7.00pm. Tickets £10 (Students £5)
