This War! follows the lives of the Goode family, and those around them, and their efforts to adapt and cope with the challenges the war brings for each of them. While the realities of austerity, relationships and rationing test them all, their courage to dream carries them through.
The show uses a mixture of stage play, wartime musical performances, archive newsreels and original film footage to tell its story.
Venue: Oakwood School, 59 Godstone Road, Purley CR8 2AN.
Wed 19th 7:30pm, Thur 20th 7.30pm, Fri 21st 7.30pm. Sat 22nd 2.30pm and 7.00pm
