The Muddy Choir is a play about growing up and the humanizing power of music being performed on 10 November.
Focusing on three young soldiers serving up with the Durham Light Infantry in 1917, the story shows Will, Robbie and Jimbo being thrust into a landscape starkly different to the playing fields and estates of their Sunderland roots. Inspired by their childhood oath ‘nee killing, anly singing’, Robbie dreams that music will be their ticket away from the front. Unfortunately, attracting the attention of their commanding officers may prove more dangerous than bullets or gas.
The play was commissioned and produced by Theatre Centre and written by Jesse Briton to mark the centenary of WW1.
