THINGS TO COME - THE VACKEES
Set at the outbreak of the Second World War, this is the funny, moving story of the "invasion" of a Somerset village by the Vackees, child evacuees from London, and their scrapes and adventures with the (at first) hostile native children. The musical centres around a young London lad, Kip, and follows his first experiences of love and war. With a memorable, tuneful score by TV and film composer Carl Davis, this evocative musical, with big production numbers, is on stage at the Cramphorn from March 17 to 21.
