Keep the Home Fires Burning is an innovative performance bringing together community choirs, local actors, musicians and dancers to remember Stroud’s role in the First World War. Written by Stuart Butler, the performance follows the history of the war using songs and articles from the Stroud News and Journal to highlight what was happening on the battlefield and at home in Stroud Town.
The performance, directed by John Bassett from Spaniel in the Works Theatre Company, highlights the changes that the war brought to the Stroud area. Keep the Home Fires Burning offers a dramatic and sometimes humorous look at how war changes the everyday lives of the people of a town, the sacrifices that the Stroud District made and the importance of remembering those who lost their lives.
Suitable for ages 7 and above.
Performance features Whiteshill and Randwick Community Choir, members of Nailsworth Silver Band and local actors and dancers
