The Accrington Pals
Playwright: Peter Whelan
When they arrive in France, the brutal reality of the trenches is beyond anything they were prepared for.
And back home amongst the women they leave behind – their mothers, wives, daughters, lovers – nothing can ever be the same again.
Peter Whelan’s epic and deeply humane play, dramatises the lives of ordinary people caught up in historical events. Funny, intimate and moving, The Accrington Pals charts the fortunes of a close-knit community on the brink of change.
Exciting young director James Dacre makes his Royal Exchange debut with this production. His recent successes include Shakespeare’s As You Like It at The Globe and Katori Hall’s Olivier Award-winning play The Mountaintop at The Trafalgar Studios.
