Nelson Arts Festival presents AN AWFULLY BIG ADVENTURE

Capital E National Theatre for Children

Brace yourselves for a ridiculously clever play that will transport you to World War One to follow a story of two young men; one a keen enlister, the other a conscientious objector.

As suitcases transform to trenches and coats become a map of Europe, their stories collide on Flanders Field. Through energetic songs and moments of Pythonesque vaudeville, this ensemble beautifully shares unforgettable stories.

"It's far funnier than a show about that war has any right to be, yet the silliness seems somehow respectful, a fitting tribute to the exuberant young men who sailed away from Wellington harbour in search of adventure." THEATREVIEW

Written & directed by Leo Gene Peters

Recommended for children 7+ years
