Carrie's War to Hit the Stage in Sheffield
Date Posted: 20/06/13
There's a chance to see one of the 20th century's best-known children's books take to the stage in Sheffield later this year.
Local theatre group the Denys Edwards Players will be staging 'Carrie's War' in the Crucible Studio from August 13th to August 17th 2013, giving families the chance to travel back in time to World War Two.
The book, written by Nina Bawden, was first published back in the early 70s and remains popular today.
The story follows Carrie Willow as she begins a new life in North Wales because of the effects of the Second World War. The stage version of the story was penned by Emma Reeves.
'Carrie's War' hit TV screens in 2004, in an adaptation which saw Pauline Quirke ('Birds of a Feather', 'Broadchurch') among its cast.
Other theatre productions being staged in Sheffield soon which you might want to book short breaks around include 'Oliver!' which will be on the Crucible main stage later this year.
