Are you wishing to commemorate the 100th Anniversaries of World War One?

Then why not stage your very own production?

The Play-Reading, entitled ‘A Village at War’, transports the audience through the early optimism of 1914, through the desperate losses of the long campaign, right up to the Armistice in 1918. This is the story of ordinary people in an ordinary village during extraordinary times. Newdigate is a village in Surrey, in the southern Weald of England, but the story could be about any place in the country.

With the 100 year anniversaries occurring many schools and history organisations are looking for ways to commemorate the event. The reading is easy to stage, has very clear instructions and does not require players learning their parts. It is a learning resource for those studying the War and can also be used as a vehicle for raising funds.

For just £75.00 you can download the narrative and appropriate pictures and music so that you can stage your very own production. Click here for more information and a longer sample recording.

‘A Village at War’ grew into a book which was published in 2011.
