Adapted by Nick Bromley from Lotte Moore’s original story
Lotte Moore’s: A Child’s War tells the story of a young girl’s experiences living in Britain during the Second World War.
The war was a time of hardship, heroism and hope. As a child, Lotte may not have been fully aware of the dangers and struggles around her but her memories of evacuation, rationing, blackouts and bombs give an incredible true insight into life during wartime Britain.
This production is adapted and directed for the stage by Nick Bromley from 81 year old local author Lotte Moore’s book, Lotte’s War. It is an accessible, first hand account of a childhood facing the perils of war with a mixture of innocence, fear and fun.
This production played at the Tabard Theatre in March and November 2018 where it played to packed performances and now returns for another run of performances.
Featuring Kirsty Jackson as Lotte, Victoria Brown as Sophie, and Jack Ayres as Ben.
‘this beautiful play feels natural and honest because it is largely told through children’s’ voices‘
