The Butcher’s Bill

22 June 2018 7.30pm
Tickets £8.50 / £6.00 (conc)

A drama, set in No Man's Land during World War1, the Butcher's Bill explores the world of three unlikely companions, thrown together by circumstances and fate.  

Using simple scenery, props and equipment this moving story of fate, survival and distrust unfolds.  The rights and wrongs of the politics of war are secondary to the  terror of captivity.  Bravery and patriotism both real and perceived weave threads through the story; eventually the truth comes out with the help of war poetry and honesty leading to understanding and sympathy but the brutality of war continues.
