Description

The Truce

Written and directed by Clayesmore Sr. School student, Lottie (Yr 13), the play explores the horrors of World War I trench warfare, whilst also looking at what brings us together. The name is taken from the brief truce which broke out in Christmas 1914.



Sidney is a British soldier who longs to be back with his sweetheart, Nellie.

Friedrich is a German soldier who yearns to be back home with his daughter, Gretal.

One night in 1914, the two meet in extraordinary circumstances.

They learn they have more in common than anything which divides them.




Doors open at 7pm.

The performance will start at 7.30pm. There is NO interval.

The performance is expected to last approximatley 30 minutes.

There will be refreshments available to purchase beforehand.




Please note, we will be collecting donations for the Royal British Legion. Please bring whatever you can afford to donate.
