Noel Coward's brand of humorous drama comes to Bristol this February, as students from the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School take on one of his least performed works.
Set in an alternative 1940, Peace in our Time looks at a world where the Battle of Britain has been lost, the Germans have air supremacy and the British Isles is under Nazi occupation.
The play is a study of a small group of Londoners and how they respond to the country being occupied.
|The play is rarely performed|
Set in a pub - close to Sloane Square - it follows the fortunes of a cross-section of London’s people during this crisis in their lives.
It was first performed in 1947 but is rarely seen because of the large cast of 22.
Reflecting the era, the sense of patriotism, and the slowly rising tension that leads to resistance. The final year acting students taking part will have to master the concepts and understand a very different Britain from that of today.
You can catch Peace in our Time at the Redgrave Theatre in Clifton from 16th - 25th February 2006.
