Hounds of theatre

Two tales are intertwined in a show coming to RAF Museum Cosford on Saturday 29 June. The year is 1941 and rehearsals for ‘Henry V’ are underway… ‘Greyhounds’ intersperses Shakespeare’s famous story of ‘warlike Harry’ with the trials and tribulations of village life during the Second World War. From within the wooden village hall, where every scene is set, the residents of Shuttlefield rehearse, gossip and indulge in some seriously bad acting as the night of the performance draws ever closer.

The play will form part of a weekend of celebrations across the whole site for Armed Forces Day and ticket holders will be able to have a closer look inside the cockpits of the world’s oldest Spitfire Mk 1 before the performance. The performance is suitable for adults and teenagers and takes place at 11am and 3pm, with tickets priced at £10 (£5 for children over 12). Visit rafmuseum.org.uk to find out more.
