BlackBox Theatre Company presents


Touring from September 20th to November 10th 2018

Following the enormous success of BOUNCERS last year, BlackBox will be on tour again this autumn with a specially commissioned play to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the end of the First World War.

Set on the battlefields of France during 1916, the multi-award winning BULLY BEEF & WHIZZBANGS takes a wry and often humorous look at life in a front line trench through the eyes of its two reluctant heroes.  SMUDGER, a new arrival at The Front, is keen to shoot his first Jerry whilst HARRY is more interested in keeping his head down, thinking of home and enjoying a nice mug of tea.  Stuck in a hole surrounded by mud and death, how will our boys cope with the ever-present danger of being shot or blown to smithereens?

“Cheer up chum.  The first seven years are the worst!”
