A story in words and music full of humour, atmosphere and inspiration about the WWI haven and refuge set up for all soldiers regardless of rank.
During the Great War, Talbot House in Poperinge, Belgium, a few short miles behind the front line, became a haven for thousands of allied troops – a ‘home from home’ where they enjoyed some home comforts and remembered the men that they really were. Run by a diminutive chaplain named Tubby Clayton the house became known by its army signaller’s code of Toc H and ultimately would be the inspiration for the association with that name.
Aimed at a family audience, this feelgood, heart-felt play gives a brief taste of the history of the house and with the aid of poetry and music from the Great War and the atmosphere that was felt by the troops who visited it.
