WW1 Play


Dear Father…with love from Annie: a play based on documented evidence of an actual event that occurred during the Christmas period of 1917, has been co-written by our Secretary and Treasurer, Trevor Druce, and Manchester based Dave Murray, who has worked with the Macclesfield Amateur Dramatic Society (MADS) on many occasions.


Written with the blessing of their descendents, it tells of the effect of war on one young Macclesfield girl and her father, as he serves his country in the trenches of France, and the tragedy that follows.


As part of the continuing theme of wars’ aftermath, we are offering an opportunity to schools and colleges of making a huge contribution to the 2018 commemorations, by performing their own interpretation of this play.
