Moving and funny recreation of the 1914 Christmas Truce
By David Wood
Where: Stroud Subscription Rooms
When: Friday, December 7, 8pm
Following a packed and acclaimed show at Stroud Subscription Rooms in 2016, be transported once more in theatre, spoken word, live music and song to No Man's Land in a moving and often funny re-creation of the 1914 Christmas Truce.
Trenchcoats for Goalposts is performed by a host of Gloucestershire's finest performers in authentic 1914 garb. With tinsel for barbed wire and an ancient football, together they turn the Sub Rooms into Flanders Field.
The show is based on local memories and the true story of two brave Forest Green FC players - Harry Watts and Ernie Beale - who set off from Nailsworth for the front line.
Covering an undisputed moment in war, humour and history, poetry and poignancy combine in this compelling and unmissable 90-minute production.
Tickets are £11.50 and available from the box office on 01453 760900 or online at www.subscriptionrooms.org.uk/whats-on/trenchcoats-for-goalposts/
