On 19th February 2017 at the Theatre Royal Brighton, the Threadbare Theatre Company, (in association with Gateways), presented two short plays from iconic writers of the era:
The Boy Comes Home by A.A.Milne (Winnie-the-Pooh) and
The New Word byJ.M.Barrie (Peter Pan)
which were written during one of the most troubling times our country has ever seen, a war that would change the face of the modern world.
Whilst a war was battled across the sea, British life continued at home with music hall entertainment cheering the spirits. Now the music and plays of this time give us a unique look into life at home 100 years ago so join us for this one-off show re-creating this iconic time.
This exciting event saw both performers and audience on the stage of Theatre Royal Brighton, with a themed refreshments bar in the wings and an opportunity to view some of Theatre Royal Brighton’s archive material in the dressing rooms.
