On 19th February 2017 at the Theatre Royal Brighton, the Threadbare Theatre Company, in association with Gateways to the First World War and Dr Helen Brooks, presented two short plays from iconic writers of the era:

The Boy Comes Home by A.A.Milne (Winnie-the-Pooh) and

The New Word byJ.M.Barrie (Peter Pan)

which were written during one of the most troubling times our country has ever seen, a war that would change the face of the modern world. Click the links above to watch videos of the productions.

Whilst a war was battled across the sea, British life continued at home with music hall entertainment cheering the spirits. Now the music and plays of this time give us a unique look into life at home 100 years ago so join us for this one-off show re-creating this iconic time.

This exciting event saw both performers and audience on the stage of Theatre Royal Brighton, with a themed refreshments bar in the wings and an opportunity to view some of Theatre Royal Brighton’s archive material in the dressing rooms.
