An August Bank Holiday Lark

Deborah McAndrew

August 1914, Wakes Week in Greenmill, and preparations are underway for the annual Rushbearing Festival. War rumbles in the distance, but, for now, family feuds, a blossoming romance and rehearsals for Morris dancing are the main preoccupations. The older men are concerned to preserve the old traditions, but as the younger ones prepare to enlist, to what will they return – if they return at all?

Voted Best New Play of 2014 at the UK Theatre Awards, An August Bank Holiday Lark is warm, funny, sad, moving, and full of the shared humanity of a long established community coping with grief and the changes facing it in a world that will never be the same again.
