North South Theatre – PALS
Friday 5th October 2018
Inspired by real war diaries, PALS is an amusing and touching piece of theatre set during the first years of the Great War. This poignant story follows Stan, George and Joe as enthusiastic pals who volunteer to join Kitchener’s new army. Their experience of life on the Western front is a stark contrast to what was promised by the officers signing them up: Embarrassing medicals, French girls, lice, rats and shrapnel wait for them but their strong friendship and sense of humour will enable these pals to stick together through it all. George and Stan’s story and will make you laugh and cry as you share their dugout with them.
North South Theatre is a Cornwall based company who have worked with cube, Story Republic, Restormel Arts, Golden Tree and can be seen most recently in TV productions Poldark and Jamaica Inn.
