It’s 1914. British entertainment is down on its uppers. Actor-manager Lena Ashwell (OBE) has a theatre but no audience, so she assembles a motley bunch of ‘turns’ and books a tour with a difference.
Her Troupers won’t tread the boards of Old Blighty, but instead the muddy, bloody fields of France.
Twice nightly, we’re here all week, if we’re here at all!
In a little-told story of the Great War, Troupers brings to life the amazingly audacious 'Concerts At The Front' – a hitherto unsung war effort that’s full of guts, gusto and greasepaint.
Who better to present this story than modern-day troubadours, Mikron?
