Battle of Britain at New Deer

New Deer Community Association will welcome Nicholas Collett Productions with Spitfire Solo on Tuesday, April 23, at 7.30pm in New Deer Public Hall.

It is June of the new Millennium. For 80-year old Peter Walker, ex-Battle of Britain pilot, an unexpected new challenge is about to begin.

From the comfort of the Silver Birches Retirement Home, he must once again find the resilience, determination and strength to do what must be done.

As he re-lives past glories, losses, wartime experiences, family memories and the heady days of blue skies and battles, he searches for the answer to the biggest question so far! Personal, charming, funny and inventive, ‘Spitfire Solo’ is one man’s battle for survival, the second time around!

Sue Robertson, promoter said: “Blending theatre, music and film in this multi-layered and textured production, Nicholas Collett plays a multitude of characters and recreates the Battle of Britain – on stage! He has created , in this understated but deeply felt performance, a memorable character. Do not miss this show”

Tickets are priced £10 and £8 and are available from The Pharmacy, 01771 644217 or Food for Thought 01771 644366 or online
