BlackBox Theatre Company presents
BULLY BEEF & WHIZZBANGS by Chris Hawley
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!”
