Fresh from a truly spiffing run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Greyhounds entwines Shakespeare's famous story of 'warlike Harry' with the everyday trials and tribulations of small village life during World War Two. Whilst the war rages above them, the residents of Shuttlefield struggle to stage a production of Henry V to raise money for the local Spitfire fund, little knowing that it will change their lives forever.
From 1941 to VE Day we follow the impact of the war on a peaceful pocket of the country and its most ordinary of inhabitants (who might not be quite as ordinary as they imagine.) New writing combining a taste of Shakespeare, a touch of comedy and true vintage flair
