Part 7: The Bombing of Plymouth
(From the full 4-hour show)
The Germans bomb Plymouth. Jack, Terry and Auntie Rose take shelter in a subway. Plus the meaning of “dreckly” - Cornish for mañana.
Includes the songs Abide with Me and There’s a War On.
Starring John Owen-Jones, Katy Secombe, Brandon McGuiness and Frankie Joel-Celoni. Adapted, directed and produced by Dominic Frisby.
Kisses on a Postcard, the intensely moving musical by Terence Frisby, tells the story of two boys in WWII - Terry and Jack, aged seven and eleven, who, to escape German bombing, are evacuated from their family in south-east London to a tiny village in Cornwall, where they spend the next four years.
Full of surprising humour and memorable songs, this is unique portrait of an extraordinary time in British history.
“Enchanting, profoundly moving and delightful,” Charles Spencer, the Telegraph.
