In 1914, when the Army came to town they wanted just one thing - YOU! By 1918, young recruits in their millions had left their homes and families, never to return.
Sixty years later a band of travelling actors and musicians retell their story. Featuring wartime songs such as Goodbye-ee, Keep the Home Fires Burning and Pack Up Your Troubles, this production will delight and inform new and old audiences alike.
So pack up your troubles and take your seats for an exhilarating expose of an unforgettable moment in history.
