The Accrington Pals

On the eve of the First World War the young men of Accrington hear Kitchener’s call for a New Army and become the smallest town in England to raise a Pals Volunteer Brigade.
When they arrive in France, the brutal reality of the trenches is beyond anything they were prepared for.
And back home amongst the women they leave behind – their mothers, wives, daughters, lovers – nothing can ever be the same again.
Peter Whelan’s epic and deeply humane play, dramatises the lives of ordinary people caught up in historical events. Funny, intimate and moving THE ACCRINGTON PALS charts the fortunes of a close-knit community on the brink of change.
