Youth Connection The Lucky Durhams



This play, set against the historically accurate backdrop of the first day of the Somme, features fictitious soldiers from the Durham Pals regiment preparing for 'the big push'. Extensive research of the Durham Light Infantry and local events have shaped the script, with reference to actual newspaper articles conveyed by the editor. Set mainly in the trenches, this production incorporates multimedia effects and music, to convey the emotions associated with life on the battlefields of 1916. A play by a local writer, whose previous work has been performed in London and the Fringe.

This show was part of our 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Programme
