WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Across five centuries of British history, small groups of children seek sanctuary in the same solid, old wardrobe. It's the safest place they know - but is it safe enough? From the last days of the Wars Of The Roses, through the brutality of the English Civil War, the paranoia of the Plague, the heartbreak of conscription during the First World War right up to modern day complications with social networking, this beautifully written new play by Sam Holcroft seamlessly weaves humour with moments in history that ultimately depict the loss of innocence of these young people.
Part of the National Theatre's nationwide Connections project, an annual festival of new plays for youth theatre groups and schools.
This event takes place at The Hub Theatre, City College Southampton
