About

John Howard's electrifying production debuted at Theatre Severn in February 2018, receiving an unanimously positive response and demanding a revival this September.

Set against the backdrop of a world at war in 1916, POPPYFIELDS tells a captivating tale of love, loss, sacrifice and brotherhood. Documenting the lives of four principal characters, POPPYFIELDS takes the audience on an emotional journey from a Home Front rife with class divide, conscription and suffrage, to the horror of the Battle of the Somme.

An immensely poignant and respectful story highlighting the young people that gave their lives for their country a century ago.

Featuring a special performance from the Military Wives Choir as part of the Matinee show on Saturday 15 September.  

PERFORMANCE 7.30PM, SAT MATINEE 2.30PM
