Join four actors as they explore the truth behind a different time and place... Through inventive play we're transported to World War One where a story emerges of two young men; one a keen enlister convinced he is on his big OE, the other a conscientious objector. As road cases transform to trenches, and a dusty collection of coats becomes 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. “An Awfully Big Adventure is a magnificently rumbustious, inventive and often hilarious production for 8-year-olds and above about, of all things, World War 1”. [Laurie Atkinson, The Dominion Post] “…moving and poignant, but hilarious as well. I learned more about WW1 in that hour than I ever did at school or university! It really was outstanding – so impressed.” [Public Programmes Manager, Rotorua Museum] “As is almost always the case with shows from Capital E, An Awfully Big Adventure is a top-notch production”. [Rochelle Gribble, Kiwi Families] Presented by the award-winning Capital E National Theatre for Children.
