Eve of War – Bournemouth

7th September 2019 @ 7:30 pm9:30 pm

Trisha Lewis plays Nanny Eve Cummins in a touching,humorous and thought provoking play set on the eve of WW2. During the course of the drama we learn of Nanny Cummins’ life, disappointments and attitudes to the looming conflict as she reads from the big Victorian history book “Little Arthur’s History of England”. She fortifies herself with a swig from her special medicine bottle that she keeps hidden under her pillow. Nanny knows she cannot keep the truth of the horror of war from her little Arthur. And in a dramatic climax we come to understand the secret that Nanny herself has kept hidden all these years…”

This is a fully staged play which lasts for just under an hour and a half plus an interval
