WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Lancashire Boys is a new project to commemorate the lives of the Bolton soldiers who fought in the First World War. Over a period of one year four local writers have been selected to produce four one-act plays that have been directed by emerging talent from BATS. Using actors from across thirty-two theatrical societies, this showcase event will be a remarkable collaboration in remembrance of the lives that were lost during the Great War.
Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, this project is a partnership between the Octagon Theatre, DBBC (Diversity in Barrier-Breaking Communities) and Bolton Amateur Theatre Societies (BATS).
