We Will Remember: Playhouse performance explores Epsom’s involvement in WW1

A cast of current and former pupils and staff will take to the stage at Epsom Playhouse on 12 November, in a reflective and moving performance highlighting the tragedy and sacrifice of World War One. The show, which commemorates the 100th Anniversary of the end of WW1, will detail the real-life response of the College and the town, and is based on the individual stories of OEs and the part they played during the war.

The play looks at how the war affected those on the home front, as well as the soldiers on the front line, whilst showing that there was a time for humour and warmth, alongside the austerity.

The story will be brought to life with songs from the period, and a performance from the School Orchestra.

All monies raised from the event will go directly to the Poppy Appeal, with the target sum of £3,000. Tickets are £15 and available to purchase from Epsom Playhouse Box Office. Tel: 01372 742555/742227
