Quint-Essential Theatre Presents WWII Ghost Play THE EVACUEE, Now thru Nov 17
Quint-Essential Theatre Company presents THE EVACUEE a World War Two Ghost Story, running from 29 October until 17 November 2013 at the Chelsea Theatre.
Set in the autumn of 1940, THE EVACUEE is a classic ghost story of a girl who is evacuated out of London and sent to live with a complete stranger.
It is late evening and Janet Young, who has not spoken a word since witnessing the death of her brother during the Blitz, has arrived at widower George Wilson's home, accompanied by her compassionate billeting of?cer, Brenda. Upset, lonely and frightened of her surroundings, Janet explores her new bedroom. Spooked by the eerie contents, Janet rushes to bed and waits for morning....
Over the next few days, we see the stresses of war take its toll on all three of our characters, turning each of their worlds upside down. As unexplained events and strange goings on happen within the house, George's dark and disturbing past is brought to light.
Originally written as a short play, Quint-Essential performed THE EVACUEE in three London fringe theatres in 2011, as part of a collection of short plays entitled Dark Tales. Due to the overwhelming response from both audience and critics alike playwright Ian Breeds set about creating the full length version of this heartbreaking yet dark original piece of theatre.
