Between The Lines, Saturday 30th January 7.30pm

Screen Shot 2016-01-14 at 14.55.15“Evocative and haunting, distilled and poignant but ultimately uplifting. A honed and crafted clever piece of theatre.”

“de Deney’s latest performance combines poetry and virtuoso storytelling to create a poignant revisiting of the themes of war, love and loss.”

Join us at St Barnabas at 7.30pm on Saturday 30th January to watch ‘Between The Lines’, a passionate one man play about the war to end all wars written and performed by Simon de Deney  (50mins).

A keeper of the graves in an old war cemetery is compelled to unravel a 100 year mystery. The play follows an underage soldier’s journey through the First World War as he struggles to deal with the impact of his choices on the people he loves most and his own sense of betrayal.

Tickets are available to purchase on the door for £10 (concessions available).
