With just-right-tone-of–humour, this show explores the story of two young men and their war… to end all wars. Through inventive play we are transported to World War One where a story emerges of two young men; one a keen enlister in the mounted rifles off on his big OE, and the other a conscientious objector, shipped to Europe for further punishment for non-compliance.

As road cases transform to trenches, and a dusty collection of coats become a map of Europe, their stories collide on Flanders fields.

Through energetic songs and moments of Pythonesque vaudeville, this high energy ensemble beautifully shares unforgettable stories. Prepare to embark on a journey to explore the truth behind a different time and place.

"It takes great skill to perform a highly polished, perfectly rehearsed piece of theatre and yet still trick the audience into thinking that what they are watching is actually improvised. But this is exactly what the cast of An Awfully Big Adventure does. I have never before watched a show aimed at a younger audience and been so completely and utterly transfixed as I am watching this one. As are the 500 children in the theatre behind me." - Review by Liz Deacle, Theatreview, 25 Aug 2017
