‘The Wipers Times’ at the Northcott Theatre

Posted on September 25, 2018


On Wednesday 12 September 2018, the GCSE and A-level Drama students went to see Ian Hislop’s funny and thought-provoking ‘The Wipers Times’ at The Northcott Theatre. Set in the trenches of WW1 the show charts the creation and rise of the real life story of the satirical newspaper, ‘The Wipers Times’.

Following a sell-out West End run and an appearance at the Passchendaele Centenary in Ypres, we were lucky to be able to see it right here on our doorstep and it provided a most entertaining start to our programme of theatre visits this year.
