Welcome to the best Bed & Breakfast on the Somme…

Expat April runs a quality establishment on the site of some of the bloodiest battles of the First World War. Death surrounds it. And sheep, lots of sheep.

There’s dinner to be served and history to pay tribute to. The guests are coming, the sheep are closing in. The table is set for an evening they’ll all remember.

Victoria Willing’s new play is a dark comedy about war, lost boys and fighting for survival.
