THE last few weeks of rehearsals are taking place for a specially-commissioned open-air play about D-Day.
A cast of more than 30 actors, of all ages, drawn from Hampshire and West Sussex will perform Tomorrow Will be Too Late on a specially-constructed open-air stage in Emsworth’s North Street car park.
Written mainly by Havant-based writer Lucy Flannery and assisted by Westbourne-based Julian Sluggett, the play is a central part of the Emsworth-based commemorations which have been funded by a £100,000 National Lottery grant.
The plot involves three different classes of Emsworth families and how the build-up to D-Day affected their everyday lives in a humorous, poignant and thought-provoking way.
Curtain-up is Friday, May 30 and there will be six performances. Each will be preceded by music Andrew G. Beaumont and His Big Band Sound accompanied by Jitter-bug and Lindy-hop Dancers.
