Play created for centenary of 1918 Armistice
The Landale Wilson Hall in Enham Alamein will be playing host to the SUP Theatre Company’s BULLY BEEF and WHIZZBANGS award winning production on the 21st April at 7.30pm. Written and directed by Chris Hawley, it was named Best Production at the 40th Totton Festival of Drama along with Best Original Script and Best Technical Achievement.
The World War 1 play, created for the centenary of the 1918 Armistice, is set on the battlefields of France during the early part of 1916 and features authentic WW1 costumes, props and a 12ft section of trench. Whizzbangs takes a wry and often humorous look at life in a WW1 trench through the eyes of its two reluctant heroes. Smudger, a new arrival on The Front, is keen to bag his first German whilst Harry, an ‘old timer’ is more interested in keeping his head down, thinking of home and enjoying a brew.
Hannah Leicester, Head of Income Generation at Enham Trust commented;
“We are delighted that the Bully Beef and Whizzbangs production is coming to Enham Alamein, as the play is closely linked with our military heritage.
“We are grateful that all ticket sales on the night will be donated to Enham Trust, supporting our cause and it is set to be a brilliant evening.”
