About Kisses …

posted: April 21st, 2010

An award-winning radio play, a widely acclaimed book and a much admired piece of musical theatre, KISSES ON A POSTCARD is a vivid, funny and intimate portrait of a unique part of our history and a compelling and uplifting memoir of growing up in an extraordinary time.

Full of surprising humour and intensely moving, it tells the true story of two brothers in WWII, evacuated along with thousands of other children after Dunkirk, and of a remarkable couple, enduring their own tragedy, who took the boys in as their own and raised them with unstinting love. An unforgettable tale of a childhood brimming with wit, colour and warmth, this is also the gripping story of a village at war, seen through the curious eyes of a seven-year-old.

With a wonderful score by our original composer, the late, Gordon Clyde, new music by renowned jazz composer John Altman and the brilliant, young Tom Recknell, KISSES ON A POSTCARD is “an enchanting, profoundly moving and delightful night at the theatre”.
