Dear Chocolate Soldier

"DEAR CHOCOLATE SOLDIER" - Saturday 2 June, 7pm

In June 1916 a 6 year old girl watches her father wrap a packet of chocolate for the brave soldiers at the front. A thought strikes her: 'How will they know it's from me?' Her father obligingly writes: ‘From Little Joan, Whiterock, Cornwall’.

Six weeks later a letter arrives for Little Joan, the first of many from Bombardier Edwin Hassall, still in the midst of the Battle of the Somme.

The story is told movingly and amusingly in this docudrama, written by Kate Glover (Price), in a cabaret style performance with poetry and songs from the period.

Tickets £12 (£10 conc) available on the door.
