THE story of nurses in the Second World War will be coming to a village hall next week.

Nursing Lives is a full-mask theatre production alive with visual inventiveness, evocative music and song, physical theatre and 1940s dance sequences.

The work originates from the true stories of nurses at the former Worcester Royal Infirmary. At its heart, Nursing Lives is a human story that celebrates nurses at work and play during the years of the Second World War.

It will be performed at Staverton Village Hall from 7pm on Thursday, January 27.

Judith Hurst, event organiser for the hall, said: “We are hoping that children will come along and see the show because the Second World War is on the national curriculum and this is a great chance to learn first hand what happened during the war.

“We were offered this show by Northants Touring Arts because they had an extra one going, and we were delighted for them to come here.”

Tickets for the show cost £7.50 for adults and £5 for children. These can be booked by calling 01327 702565 or 01327 706500.
