In tribute to the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1 we are presenting a production looking at
how our part of Kent was affected by the conflict. A mixture of real events and dramatic
observations centred around North West Kent. Concentrating on the home front with all the
new demands placed on the population and the changes war brings about and also the
correspondence that passed between those at home and those abroad. This war was the first to
have aerial bombing and Kent received regular visits from the enemies Zeppelins and bombers
and civilians suffered death and destruction when the war was brought to their front door.
But there is a lighter side too, and the compassion and memories of those who were involved in
the conflict can be enlightening, even bizarre on occasions.
From Crayford to Gravesend to Chatham to the towns in between and many of the villages in
the hinterland there are stories to be told, many unknown to present generations, and many
forgotten by who once knew.
This production is not a history lesson, it is an entertainment full of real life and death.
