Letters From The Front - New Musical Drama
***** ONLINE SALES FINISHED FOR THIS EVENT *****
West End Superstar Rebecca Storm returns to the Dublin stage this Autumn, in the new Irish musical “Letters from the Front”. Fresh from yet another acclaimed performance in “Blood Brothers” and her recent much-lauded concert “Goin’ Back – A Lifetime of Song” in the National Concert Hall, Rebecca is one of the most popular leading ladies in musical theatre, having portrayed some of the most demanding roles including Eva Peron in ‘Evita’, Fantine in ‘Les Miserables’, Florence in ‘Chess’, Rose in ‘Aspects of Love’, Edith Piaf in ‘Piaf’, Joan of Arc in ‘Jeanne’, Miss Hannigan in ‘Annie’, and Chris in “Calendar Girls”. Rebecca’s latest performance will be as Mrs Breitner in the poignant drama which will be presented by Cloud 9 Productions.
Written and directed by Don O’Connor (Kilkenny) and Ollie Hennessy (Carlow), this original musical drama inspired by real letters written by soldiers and family members from 1914-1918 and featuring a cast of 35, tells the story of three families, caught up in the turmoil of World War One. A story of love, hope, despair and loss, it follows the tale of young Irish couple Willie and Eileen, forced to separate as Willie enlists to fight on the Western Front. A young German boy Heinrich, falsifies his true age in order to fight under the German flag, while an embittered British officer prepares to lead his troops against the enemy in the trenches of Northern France. The poignant drama pulls no punches in depicting the horrors encountered by both German and British troops in the mud soaked trenches during the Great War and examines the effects of the war on those left at home as their husbands, fathers and sons marched into battle.
Featuring 11 original songs and an original musical score, “Letters from the Front”.
