Breakwater Theatre Company preview new work
Andy Evans January 2019
In conjunction with Lincs Inspire and Cleethorpes Library, Breakwater Theatre Company will be presenting new work written by Andy Evans. Two new plays will be presented in consecutive months.
"Indomitable" tells the inspirational story of children's author Elisabeth Sheppard-Jones. Elisabeth became a paraplegic after a German bomb destroyed the chapel in which she was worshiping during WW2. As a female officer, Elisabeth spent time at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, with the famous Doctor Guttman, and fought for her own independence and any possible recovery or progress. It is safe to say that Elisabeth enjoyed a full life after her accident and became an inspiration to hundreds of fellow patients, children and radio listeners. This one-woman show will be performed on Friday 26th April 2019.
"With Love From Ruhleben" tells a little known story of a civilian internment camp in Spandau, just outside Berlin during WW1. Approximately 5000 civilians were interned at the outbreak of hostilities and those who were sent to Ruhleben managed to find respite for the duration of the war turning the camp into what many labelled "Little England". We follow the story of a young man from a Grimsby ship that had the misfortune to be in German waters when the war began. This piece is the culmination of research done as a project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and will be performed on May 31st 2019.
