As part of Sunderland Literature Festival, Sunderland Libraries are hosting a stunning piece of theatre to commemorate the centenary of World War 1 and Armistice Day 2018.

The Muddy Choir tells the story of three soldiers serving with the Durham Light Infantry in November 1917. Including traditional wartime songs, it is a play about childhood friends, torn from the estates of their Sunderland homes, growing up in unbearable circumstances and the humanising power music can have.

Commissioned and produced by Theatre Centre, the longest established touring company in the UK, the play was written by award winning Jesse Briton to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War.

The event is on Saturday 3 November 2018 at City Library, Museum and Winter Gardens at 11.30am.

Tickets are £5 and available in advance from and available at the door on the day.

Please note this show contains sudden loud noises and flashes.
