Radio Days – The War Years, Coulsdon, Apr 1-9


After the success of Theatre Workshop Coulsdon’s first Radio Days showcase in 2015, set in the golden days of wireless broadcasting, the theatre group is leaping aboard their dramatic time machine and going back still further.

Transmission Two : The War Years sees us clutching our gas masks and ration books, with one ear listening to the radio and the other waiting for the air raid siren.

A collection of sketches and playlets, from the deadly serious to the downright funny, and all inspired by the period, means an excellent evening of new yet nostalgic entertainment for everyone.

And it’s all wrapped up in the timeless music of the period.

It’s a showcase too for Theatre Workshop Coulsdon’s writing talents. Every comedy or drama has sprung from the pen of one of the cast, some writing for the very first time.

So on with your siren suits, use gravy browning and an eye pencil on your legs if you can’t afford nylons, and make your way with care through the black-out to Coulsdon Community Centre this April.

And put that light out!

Showing at the Coulsdon Community Centre, Barrie Close, Chipstead Valley Road, CR5 3BE on April 1, 2, 6, 7, 8 at 8pm and April 9 at 3pm.

Tickets £10. Concessions £7.
