As the centenary of World War One looms, the true story of a miner trapped in a tunnel during the conflict will be told in Lancaster this April.

The Trench is an award winning play which achieved a sell-out five star run at the Edinburgh Festival and will be on a nationwide tour when it calls into the Lancaster theatre on April 23 and 24.

Theatre company Les Enfants Terribles will blend live music, puppetry and physical performance to capture the drama of being entombed in a tunnel during the Great War.

The Trench is recommended for anyone aged 11 plus. Following the April 23 performance there will be a post show talk-back.
