AN EXCITING wartime tale of adventure and friendship will be brought vividly to life in the thrilling drama Friend or Foe, which comes to the Pavilion Arts Centre next week.
Set at the height of World War II, two boys, David and Tucky, are evacuated from London. After settling into their new life in the countryside with Mr Reynolds and his wife Ann, they feel like the war, and their old lives in London, are a long way away.
Then one night the skyline of the moor is lit up with gun flashes, and the distant crump of bombing miles away brings the war back to them and shatters their new-found peace.
When a German bomber crashes, the boys feel they should hate the airmen inside. But one of them saves David’s life...
Scamp Theatre, in association with Watford Palace Theatre, bring Michael Morpurgo’s tale Friend or Foe to the Pavilion Arts Centre on Friday October 21 at 10am and 1pm, and Saturday October 22 at 2.30pm and 7.30pm.
