The young men of Accrington raise a Pals Volunteer Brigade in 1914, one of the smallest towns in England to do so. The play charts the fortunes of a close-knit community facing a momentous and horrific reality and charts how the lives of all those caught up in this event are changed for ever. This is an epic and deeply moving play.
NB — the play does contain strong language and nudity
