Popular Children's Book About Life As An Evacuee In WW2 To Hit The Stage

82-Year-Old Author's Children's Book Adapted For The Stage


London, United Kingdom, Thursday 15thFebruary 2018: A Child's War by Lotte Moore has successfully secured a run at the Tabard Theatre in Chiswick in March 2018. The inaugural play will launch an ambitious plan by the octogenarian writer to take her World War Two story of life as an evacuee across the country.


Inspired by the best-selling children's book Lotte's War (Urbane Publications, November 2016), the emotive story has been adapted for the stage by Nick Bromley and continues to be aimed at children (seven to 11-year olds) and, of course, adults are welcome! The show will help young people today to understand the true-life story of Lotte Moore - and the thousands of other young evacuees who were sent away from their homes, schools and lives - during the War.


Schools are invited to be part of the inaugural performances at the West London theatre from Tuesday 20thMarch to Saturday 24thMarch inclusive. At just 45 minutes long, it is perfect for younger children, and will provide vivid insight into WW2 from the perspective of a young girl. Lotte Moore is a prolific writer, with more than 20 children's books published since her writing career took off at the age of 70.
