The Muddy Choir
A new play by Jesse Briton to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War for young audiences aged 13+
Commissioned and produced by Theatre Centre.
The summer of 1917 and the third battle for Ypres is lurching towards its bloody conclusion. Young soldiers Will, Rob, and Jumbo are thrust into a landscape starkly different to the playing fields and estates of their Sunderland home. When the trio’s singing causes a disturbance up the line they face unwelcome attention from their commanding officers. Is music their ticket away from the front, as Robbie dreams, or will the passion it brings about prove more dangerous than bullets and gas?
The Muddy Choir is a story about boys growing up and the humanising power of music. Commissioned and produced by Theatre Centre, the play has been written by Jesse Briton to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War. The play, which includes period songs, tells the story of three young boys serving with the Durham Light Infantry in 1917.
“In this centenary year, there is a particular significance in bringing to venues work that reflects the reality of the First World War for the millions caught up in it, including so many young people.” ~ Jesse Briton, Playwright
