Henrietta's War

Joyce Dennys, adapted by Lorraine Morley

Henrietta Brown used to be an artist before the war but with her creative endeavours on hold and with a doctor husband and children who want to play their part in the war effort, her world is suddenly very different.

Join Henrietta as she shares letters with her childhood friend Robert who is serving in France. You and Robert will hear about the trials and tribulations, ups and down and laughter and tears of the community in this small seaside town during World War II. This very human and warm portrayal of life will draw you in and leave you feeling for an hour or so you have taken a small step back into another time.

This production is suitable for ages 12 and over.
