Privates on Parade
Privates on Parade

by Peter Nichols Music by Dennis King
Directed by Pauline Armour

29th June to 6th July 2019

Originally produced by the RSC in the late 1970’s, at GWT in 1987 and more recently in London’s West End. Both a vivid record of a slice of showbiz history and politically astute Privates on Parade follows the trials and tribulations of an army song and dance company as they entertain the troops during the 1948  Malayan Emergency. Deliciously tatty light entertainment, enjoyably rude jokes, flamboyant outfits, many men in frocks are coupled with sudden jolting drama when violence flares. Gloriously entertaining and often deeply touching – join in the fun, clap your hands , tap your feet and remember your hankie.

This play includes some strong language, some violence and some nudity.
