Papertown Productions presents Wor War by David Cooke with music by Grahame Wright
“What did you do in the war Nana?” asks young Jimmy Taylor. So begins the heart-warming story of a North-East family caught up in the terrifying and exhilarating experiences of war time life. Watch the scary excitement of the air raid siren, the darkness of blackouts, hardship, laughter, black market treats, the freshly baked national loaf, Dolly, Albert’s sister, cheering up the soldiers with Gracie Fields songs,, and Grandma’s dark secret. Travel back with Jimmy to the terrible air raids of 1941 when the folks of Shields showed what they were made of; a time of hope, anguish, love and laughter.
WorWar will make you laugh, cry, and have you singing all the way home.
