The Thankful Village

presented by Badapple Theatre Company

Set against the backdrop of World War I, the quiet village backwater of Bottledale is changed forever by the advent of the conflict.  But the plaque and the roll of honour stone in the village square remain empty and un-etched as the years pass, and folk start to wonder ...

The story is of hope, humour and humanity, about the men who went away, the women left behind and the eccentric twists and turns of daily life that led to their re-uniting, for better or worse, in the winter of 1918.

The Thankful Villages were those who lost no men in the Great War because all those who left to serve came home again.  There were some 52 settlements in England and Wales which could claim this honour at the end of the conflict.
