York Gate Garden Tea Room

Trio Literati ‘War on Our Doorstep’

WHEN: Saturday 19 January 2019, 7.00pm
WHAT: Theatre performance
WHERE: York Gate Garden Tea Room
PRICE: £8.50


The play consists  of beautifully observed vignettes evoking the atmosphere and thoughts of Yorkshire residents based on 3 wartime archives — a housewife’s diary from the Mass Observation Project 1939–40, the diary of a recruit to the Army Medical Corps, and the wartime diaries of our own Fred Spencer, founder of York Gate Garden.

The wartime love of music and dance, and observations of life during the war, are interwoven with music performed by two musicians and including ‘The Lambeth Walk’, (with lively dance showing the wartime spirit), ‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin’ (the young recruit separated from his girlfriend) and audience participation with ‘Bluebirds over the white cliffs of Dover’ and ‘We’ll Meet Again’.
