Archives - The Accrington Pals

by Peter Whelan

Directed by Yvana Reeves

Friday 28th March – Saturday 5th April 2014 in the Auditorium

A chronicle of the terrible waste of war – powerful, funny, intimate and moving

As a small town in Lancashire sends a battalion of ‘pals’ to fight in the Battle of the Somme, the womenfolk are left behind to hold the fort. Some flourish briefly as they find a measure of independence amid the anxiety, but their own hideous battles begin when the terrible news comes home.
