Mud Rats

New Adelphi Theatre

Set during the catastrophic events of World War One, George, Harry, Richard, and Thomas are four juvenile teenagers who have been sent to battle.

Despite the devastating conclusion that brings their story to an end, this play explores masculinity and the relationships formed as these soldiers pass the time - during their waiting game in the trenches.

This play is dedicated to all of those who fell during the events of World War One.

Disclaimer: This performance is a dramatisation of World War One and will not include 100% historical accuracy. These characters are fictional.

Starring Ciaran Cookson, Ollie Bolton, Curtis McCarthy. Harry King, Alfie Cooke, James McMahon

Admission: Pay What You Can

Pay What You Can is an ‘honesty box’ for the theatre. We and the artists will continue to programme and produce high quality events and ask you to pay what you can afford.

As a guide, for those in full time employment we would appreciate you donating between £5 and £10. We also understand people's income can be precarious, hence the lower price options. All revenue from ticket sales for events at New Adelphi Theatre will always go back to support professional artists, through residencies, commissions, touring work or for more bespoke projects where the student experience is enhanced through co-creation with arts professionals. We thank you for all your continued support.

Please note all bookings and donations come with a 50p booking fee.
