Trent to Trenches

Trent to Trenches: Nottingham Playhouse Presents - The Second Minute

  • 9 May 2014 7:30-10pm

During the First World War around 19,000 mailbags crossed the Channel every day and the art of letter writing enveloped the country as people wrote messages to sons, brothers, husbands and lovers, all carefully carried between English homes and the chaos and insanity of the trenches.

To mark the centenary of the First World War and based upon the archive letter collection of the Sherwood Foresters regiment, this poignant and uplifting production weaves together heroic, comic, and heart-breaking tales of soldiers and families through their own words. And in doing so, explores how this most elemental and vanishing form of communication managed to hold the country together whilst a generation of men was being destroyed.
