British Blues Awards ‘Female Vocalist of the Year’ 2014, Jo Harman, who has recently been announced as one of the headliners at BluesFest at the O2 in November comes to Truro for her first and only Cornwall date.

Jo’s 2013 debut album ‘Dirt on my Tongue’ received remarkable critical acclaim making several of ‘best of’ lists and awards, internationally. She subsequently signed to V2 (stable mates include Adele, Mumford and Sons, Queens of the Stone Age etc.,) in Europe.

Her show is a compelling mix of heartfelt originals and her take of well-known classics, covering a broad range of soulful, bluesy material that will, by turns, pull at your heartstrings and rock your world.

A piece of new writing about the Great War Set during the first years of the conflict, this poignant dark comedy follows the story of two innocent and enthusiastic men who volunteer their services to Britain after Kitchener’s call for a New Army.

“Back before Christmas, they said.”

The two friends (who are also brothers-in-law) do their best to keep each other’s spirits up, with bawdy humour, trenchant sarcasm and a camaraderie that only comes from knowing one another for years. Letters from home are not always a joy to receive.

Despite the fiction, this story’s background is firmly based in reality as battalions of ‘Pals’ were really formed from groups of friends and work-mates, and they fought together just as they do in the play. The transition from being caught up in the propaganda machine which promised glory and honour, to the reality of their situation (rats, lice and all), takes you on an unforgettable and gripping journey.

North South Theatre Company was created in 2014 by Jason Gerdes and Steven Kelly who had previously met on an actors’ training program. After realising they both had a similar penchant for comedy and an idea of what theatre is, it only seemed natural to embark on creating their own theatre company; this initially involved creating video sketches with cardboard boxes and ideas for small plays – which went no further than the experimental stage. Inspiration came when Jason read some WWI diaries and decided to write his first play. After a period of editing and fine-tuning and receiving successful Feast funding, Pals was born and went into development to become the well-received play it is today.

Cast: Jason Gerdes, Steven Kelly and Sam Rankin. Directed by Shazz Andrews (Scary Little Girls) Produced by Jasmine Cole. Live Music by Tom Edie.
