Review of Aftermath
A vibrant and challenging production exploring the transition between the home front in Northampton and the theatre of war that brought personal Northamptonshire stories to life. The letter scenes were incredibly moving highlighting the importance of letters between the home front and the theatre of war as a way of communicating with loved ones.
The play encouraged questions around big themes including the aftermath of war. What happens next? How did families cope when absence meant people grew apart and moved on? Also how do we relate to this today? At the point where facts and emotions collide how do we understand what our ancestors went through? How does this impact on our lives today?
The young people were incredibly talented and it was clear through this really thoughtful production they had learnt a lot about themselves and their ancestors.
