Pals will be staged at The Theatre Shop, in Queens Square, on October 31 at 2.30pm and 7.30pm.

The show will be performed by Cornwall-based company North South Theatre.

Inspired by real war diaries, Pals is a touching show set during the early years of World War One and highlights reality of their situation.

The dark comedy follows the story of two enthusiastic and innocent pals who volunteer their services to Britain after Lord Kitchener’s call for a new army in 1914.

The two soldiers, who are also brothers-in-law, do their best to keep each other’s spirits up, with humour, sarcasm and a camaraderie which comes from knowing one another for years.

The story’s background is firmly tells the story of the trenches as pals were formed from groups of friends and work-mates.

Embarrassing medicals, French girls, lice, rats and shrapnel wait for them but their strong friendship and sense of humour will enable the men to stick together through it all.

The transition from propaganda machine which promised glory and honour, to the reality of the pals’ situation, takes the audience on a gripping journey.

At each touring location, the production will adapt to become community-specific, bringing to life the area’s war-time historical connections.

Tickets, priced £12, are available at or on 03336 663366.
