Exmouth’s Great War
Compiled by Tony ChristopherDirected
by Peter Nickols-Rawle
Through first-hand accounts of the War at home and abroad, together with poems and songs, we explore how it all felt from Exmouth. As well as the tragedy, there were moments of humour: the servicemen and those at home all rallied and won through. And women’s lives were changed for ever…
A one-act play by Alan Marshall,
directed by Andy Jury
Every year, the Pye family, like many other families, has a photograph taken in a studio and sends copies to relatives. In 1914, this is a very special photograph because John Pye, the son of the family, has volunteered to fight in France and has just been issued with his uniform. During the following two years, the Pyes turn up for the annual photograph until, eventually, in 1916, there is just a gathering of women. The war has imprisoned some women and liberated others. Nothing will ever be the same again…

Open Auditions – Terminus
The Exmouth Players are inviting budding actors and actresses to OPEN AUDITIONS at The Blackmore Theatre on Sunday 23rd November at 10.30am for a new, exciting and modern cutting edge drama called Terminus.
Terminus, an original script written by Al Brunker and John Palmer, won the prestigious NODA South West award for best drama production in 2013 and is being directed for the Blackmore Theatre by Wendy Bishop. The drama focuses on a group of individuals on a train journey, each with their own past and each with their own stories, secrets and twists and turns of everyday life. The train travels through East Anglia, final destination Norwich and culminates in a dramatic ending, sure to keep the audience thoroughly engaged.
Terminus runs from 16-21 March 2015. Rehearsals start at end of January. For scripts or further information contact Wendy Bishop on 01395 269 448.
