MEMBERS of Knutsford Little Theatre pay tribute next week to soldiers of the Great War and more recent conflicts in poignant and moving plays.

The plays, written by brother and sister writing duo, Stuart Oakes and Susan Cowley, may be focused on different periods but offer strong and unsettling similarities.

The first play, Aftermath, is a contemporary exposé of conflict, following the life of a modern-day solider and the impacts of war on his life.

From emotionally-charged dialogue, to gripping and moving soliloquies, 'Aftermath' is a moving and immersive look into the effects of conflict, not only on the combatant but also the impact it has on their family and friends.

The second play asks ‘Will You Remember Them?’ and the audience finds themselves thrust into the early days of the First World War, witnessing the catastrophic effects it had, especially on the younger generation.

Drawing on real-life accounts of soldiers in the Great War, the play highlights the reality of trench warfare and the devastating psychological effects of what would one day be known as PTSD.

With a cast of 13 across the two plays, the theatre is delighted to welcome a new face, Sam Rees, who plays the younger incarnation of a fallen solider.

It is also pleased to be welcoming back Harriet Henry, last seen on its stage in 'The Thrill of Love', and Patrick Smith, who played the title role in 'My Boy Jack' in 2014.

The show runs from Wednesday, November 7 until Saturday, November 10. Opening night is already sold out but limited tickets, priced at £10, are still available for the remaining performances at
