Leave Hitler To Me Lad

Leave Hitler to Me, Lad, is a play written around a true story coming to the Under Ground Theatre on Sunday June 21 at 2pm and 7pm.

The production tells the untold story of a lost generation of children in the aftermath of World War ll.

Brian’s Dad is a war hero and he’s coming home any day but has not been back in seven years.

It’s 1952 and the country is rebuilding itself. King George is dead, and rock ‘n’ roll is here to stay. Brian builds his own little family at school with his rabbit Pandy, friends Gladys, an orphan, George, who doesn’t know where his parents are either and Mr Bill his Welfare Officer. The production, written by award-winning playwright Haley Cox, is based on the experiences of her father and his school friends during their time at Great Stony residential school.

Music by Ben Pringle, best known for the TV hit Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
