The Trench

Pulteney Grammar School is proud to present its 2018 Year 12 Drama production: the Australian premiere of 'The Trench'.

Written by Oliver Lansley, 'The Trench' is inspired by the true story of a miner who became entombed in a tunnel during World War One. As the horror threatens to engulf Herbert, he discovers another world beneath the mud and death. Setting off on an epic journey of salvation and guided by the ghosts of his past, the boundaries between reality and fantasy blur as he questions what’s real, what’s not and whether it even matters. Our audience will be immersed into a world of physical storytelling, verse, puppetry and live music, and explore the sacrifices we make for life and love. 

There are four performances at the Bakehouse Theatre (Angas St, Adelaide) next week. Tickets have been selling very well, with three performances already sold out – but limited seats are available to our opening night, Wednesday 5th September.
