THE
 
ACCRINGTON PALS
 
Written by Peter Whelan 
Directed by Julie Lomas 
 
 
 
DRAMA

This moving and hard-hitting play, set in Accrington during the early years of the First World War, is considered to be one of the best plays ever written on the subject.

It is not only the story of a band of young men who enlisted and died in France, but also the story of the womenfolk who were left behind, who grew into their new-found  independence and who slowly came to realise that the propaganda they were being fed was based on lies. 

However, in contrast with the terrible reality of the 
Battle
 of The Somme, there are also moments of fun and light-heartedness. 

The play was previously performed by The Grange Players in 1985.
