Time & Again Theatre Company Presents GREYHOUNDS by Laura Crow.
“I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips, straining upon the start. The game?s afoot. Follow your spirit, and upon this charge cry ?God for Harry, England, and Saint George!?
The year is 1941 and rehearsals for Henry V are underway…
Greyhounds entwines Shakespeare’s famous story of ‘warlike Harry’ with the everyday trials and tribulations of small village life during World War Two. Whilst the war rages above them, the residents of Shuttlefield struggle to stage a production of Henry V to raise money for the local Spitfire fund.
From within the ‘wooden O’ of the local village hall, where every scene is set, they rehearse, gossip and indulge in some seriously bad acting as the night of the performance draws ever closer.
New writing combining a taste of Shakespeare, a touch of comedy and true vintage flair.
Greyhounds is the first play by new young writer Laura Crow. It first premiered at The Greater Manchester Fringe Festival in July 2017 where it sold out
