It’s the day of Bert’s funeral, an RAF veteran of the Second World War. His family have gathered at his home for his last farewell, when they discover an old suitcase full of memorabilia in his attic.
There’s a photo. "Me and Jamie, a bit worse for wear after a night out in London." "That was a night to remember. I’ll say no more. Within 24 hours of that picture we were over Germany again."
Told through the words and eyes of those who were there, it is an immersive verbatim production with a cast playing over 100 characters. Featuring 1940s music and songs and poetry.
