946: THE AMAZING STORY OF ADOLPHUS TIPS




MAR 16 – APR 9, 2017


 

“A Must-See Show…Embraces immigrants and the need for allies in a hostile world… A larkish and mournful love letter to the past…”
The New York Times Critics’ Pick

Kneehigh return to St. Ann’s with 946: The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips, a new adaptation from director Emma Rice, and the award-winning author of War Horse, Michael Morpurgo. Infused with everything we crave from the creators of Brief Encounter and Tristan & Yseult, 946 explodes one of history’s forgotten truths about World War II and challenges everything we thought we knew about the D-Day landings. The result is “a profoundly moving celebration of love and hope” that comes alive with the heartfelt consideration, fervor and feeling only Kneehigh can conjure (The Stage).

Runtime: Approx. 2 hours with a 15-minute intermission
For adults and brave children 10+

It makes for a winningly rumbustious show, spilling over with song and dance and inventive cheek, that movingly affirms life in the face of the tragedy at its heart.
