Letters From The Front – A Musical Drama

Written and directed by Carlow’s Ollie Hennessy and Kilkenny man Don O’Connor, this original musical drama tells the story of three families, caught up in the turmoil of World War One.

Starring West End superstar Rebecca Storm, this story of love, hope, despair and loss follows the tale of young Irish couple Willie and Eileen, forced to separate as Willie enlists to fight on the Western Front. A young German boy Heinrich, falsifies his true age in order to fight under the German flag, while an embittered British officer prepares to lead his troops against his enemy in the trenches of Northern France.

Inspired by real letters written by soldiers and family members from 1914-1918, this poignant drama features a strong Carlow/Kilkenny cast.
