The year is 1941 and rehearsals for Henry V are underway…
Greyhounds entwines Shakespeare's famous story of 'warlike Harry' with the everyday trials and tribulations of small village life during World War Two. Whilst the war rages above them, the residents of Shuttlefield struggle to stage a production of Henry V to raise money for the local Spitfire fund, little knowing that it will change their lives forever.
From 1941 to VE Day we follow the impact of the war on a peaceful pocket of the country and its most ordinary of inhabitants (who might not be quite as ordinary as they imagine.) New writing combining a taste of Shakespeare, a touch of comedy and true vintage flair.
Greyhounds is the first play by ...new young writer Laura Crow. It premiered as a one-act play at The Greater Manchester Fringe Festival in July 2017 where it sold out leading to a second run in September 2017. This year Time & Again Theatre Company will be traveling up to Edinburgh to perform Greyhounds at the most famous Fringe festival in the world. But first they'll be presenting the new full-length version of the play (with a second act, never yet performed!) at the Lauriston Studio at the Altrincham Garrick Playhouse on Wednesday 13th and Thursday 14th June, 7.30PM.
Tickets are available from the box office in person and over the phone on 0161.928.1677 option 1 and will be on the Garrick website by the end of the week.
Tickets are £10 (£9 Members)
