The Accrington Pals CADS Presents: The Accrington Pals follows the story of the innocent and enthusiastic men who volunteered their services to their country after Kitchener’s calls for a New Army. Their experiences of life on the Western Front are contrasted with the women who are left behind in Accrington, women who come together as friends when facing financial, social and sexual deprivation, as well as being thrown into the social changes that came along with the absence of many men.

The main characters, too, are contrasted; May, as independent, hard-working, fruit and veg stall holder, Tom, her lodger, as optimistic and idealistic and Eva, May’s trusted and generous confidante and sweetheart of Ralph. The play has fun and light-hearted moments, which are starkly contrasted with the terrifying reality hundreds of men faced at the Battle of the Somme in 1916.

Message from the Manager A warm welcome to our Autumn brochure. There really is something for everyone to enjoy over the next few months and of course below is a sneak preview of what’s coming in 2019. By coming to see the shows you are supporting the theatre, so please spread the word to your friends, family & colleagues about us. I’d just like to remind you about our fantastic ‘Friends’ who support the theatre & our amazing army of volunteers. If you have a few spare hours & would like to help out, we would love to hear from you (Email: admin@westcliffclacton.org). This not only covers being ‘Front of House’ or ‘Backstage’ but perhaps you could help with marketing, artwork design, fundraising or even lend a hand with maintaining and improving the building. Thank you again for your support, it really does mean the world to us.
