BishBashBosh Productions and Iron Shoes presents...
Surfing Tommies
Written by Alan M Kent
Directed by John Hoggarth

Set during, and in the aftermath of the First World War, this poignant drama follows the lives of three members of the Duke of Cornwall?s Light Infantry, on an incredible journey from the mines of Cornwall to the fields of Flanders, and back home again.

Along the way we watch characters fall in and out of love, meet with mazed beauties, and befriend the very first surfers in the unlikeliest of surroundings.

Though set in the early twentieth century, this darkly mischievous play makes comment on current conflicts around the world, and what it is like to be away from where you d?belong t?be.
Suitable for ages 14+
