Fighting HIgh & For George Productions present
Their Finest Hour
by Steve Darlow.
Their Finest Hour presents the story of the men and women who served with the Royal Air Force during the Second World War.
It’s the day of Bert’s funeral, an RAF veteran of the Second World War. His family have gathered at his home for his last farewell, when they discover an old suitcase full of memorabilia in his attic. There’s a photo. ‘Me and Jamie, a bit worse for wear after a night out in London.’ ‘That was a night to remember. I’ll say no more. Within 24 hours of that picture we were over Germany again.'
A completely new theatre piece, told through the words and eyes of those who were there, it is a truly unique and immersive verbatim production, with a cast playing over 100 characters. Featuring 1940s music and songs, poetry, and gripping story-telling, this stylish performance brings an emotive and significant part of our history to life.
Written by Steve Darlow.
Directed by Joe Malyan.
Produced by Steve Darlow and Auriole Wells.
