Troupers by Mikron Theatre 7:30 pm - 9:15 pm on 22/10/2014
Join Mikron Theatre Company for a little-told story of the Great War. TROUPERS brings to life the amazingly audacious Concerts At The Front – a hitherto unsung war effort that’s full of guts, gusto and greasepaint.
It’s 1914. British entertainment is down on its uppers. Actor-manager Lena Ashwell (OBE) has a theatre but no audience. So she assembles a motley bunch of ‘turns’ and books a tour with a difference.
Running time: approx. 110mins including a 20 minute interval.
