WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Hallowed Turf is a story of soldiers, football and heroes ... A young man's dream of becoming a footballer is brought to the front when he meets his hero on a very different front line. This powerful and heart-breaking new play shares the true story of footballing star Walter Tull, the first Black officer to serve in the British Army in World War One, told through the imagined letters of an unknown seventeen year old solder. This incredible story of new grounds broken, of bravery, friendship and the true horrors of life in the trenches is set to have a wide appeal to regular and new audiences and school groups.
