Stage show in Spalding explores the legacies of conflict 100 years apart

By Spalding Reporter

Marking the centenary of the Armistice in 1918, two local touring companies have worked together to bring ‘Crossings’, to the South Holland Centre in Spalding on Friday, October 26.

It is a story portraying the effect of conflict 100 years apart and those finding refuge from it in England’s countryside, writes Patrick Walsh.

Set in 1919, act one follows a grieving sister who stumbles upon a cross-dressing soldier at a local village hall who fought alongside her brother.

One hundred years later the sister’s grandson has a similar encounter at the same village hall. He meets Mirjana who escaped the conflict in Sarajevo.

These encounters unfold into unexpected, emotional and often humorous stories through music and dance.

Tickets for the show, which starts at 7.30pm, are available from the centre via www.southhollandcentre.co.uk, 01775 764777 or in person.
