Into The Breeches!
Into The Breeches! Adapted from the play by George Brant, directed by Daniel Peckett and Katie McGee. The Saints, Allesley Village Hall, Coventry, from 9 – 13 October 2023.
Set in 1982 at the dawning of the Falklands War. "Into the Breeches!" delves into the journey of a drama company led by the dedicated director, Maggie Dalton, who valiantly shoulders the responsibility of leading the production of Shakespeare’s Henriad along with her star and method acting thespian, Celeste Fielding.
Maggie and her cast must band together while taking on unconventional roles and navigating the complexities of their personal lives. Through this process, they learn about themselves and each other as they discover the true power of art and community. United in making a stand for change - The Show Must go On!
