Somewhere in England- Historic performance at Debach Airfield
Somewhere in England , our exciting new play commissioned to share the story of the 8th USAAF and their time in England, is proving a great success.
“An economical, eloquent historical drama which speaks directly to Britain today, where prejudice and mistrust persist alongside liberal multiculturalism.”
“This is one of their best shows for a long time”
“The play tours till June, often one-nighters in robust Eastern Angles style – with a site-specific performance in Debach Airfield, which could be thrilling . Nathanael Campbell is already a name to watch.”
What’s more, we’ve an extra special performance coming up at a historic airfield once home to the 8th USAAF.
Saturday 28 May will see two performances at RAF Debach, near Woodbridge, home to the 493 BG in the 1940’s.
Alongside the play you will be able to take part in a whole host of great activities, from wartime singers, re-creators, vintage film shows and the chance to explore the space of an airfield at war. The museum will also be open all day.
Sunday 29 May will see a vintage vehicle run from the museum and the chance to once again explore the airfield and museum.
Please note the play is also being performed at Debach on Friday 27 May & Sunday 29 May. On all dates you can still visit the historic airfield museums, however the extra activities detailed above take place on Saturday only.
Nylons, Hershey bars and jitterbugging to Swing Bands in the local village hall all feature in the play but there was another side to this shared history – a tale of segregation and of rural communities turned upside down. Kids being forced to grow up before their time, friendships forged and then blown apart and outsiders learning to live amongst the locals.
