Letters from the Front by GLOW Theatre

Suitable for ages 12 years and over

Tickets available at UTASS 

Get wrapped up in a wartime romance in Glow Theatre’s Letters from the Front. Based on the book ‘Thirty-odd feet below Belgium’ by Arthur Stockwin, Letters from the Front is a touching and personal performance inspired by the story of real couple Edith Ainscow and Geoffrey Boothby, who, after spending only four days together, were seperated when Geoffrey was sent to the front to work for the Royal Engineer Tunnellers below the Ypres Salient.

Over 18 months, hope was sustained and a relationship blossomed through little more than written correspondence caring, spirited and courageous, their letters are lovingly brought to life through a fusion of digital media and traditional storytelling.
