Searchlight Theatre Company

A play of overwhelming sincerity and honesty and a moving tribute to an incredible and unique First World War chaplain. ★★★★ (BroadwayBaby.com, 2014). Poignant drama interspersed with war songs and emotive poetry. The Reverend Geoffrey Studdert-Kennedy was a hero to the lads in the trenches giving out his little gospels and fags in equal measure. He believed a padre's place was on the front line taking the same risks as the men in the trenches. His changing and darkening view on The Great War is sombrely reflected in his stirring poetry. A must see.

Poignant portrayal of the realities of war and the young soldiers thinking about their mortality and ultimately for some of them that hope of heaven... brilliant actors
