It’s 1923 and the village moves away from the horrors of war and into the roaring twenties. It’s “boom or bust”, the Charleston and the Black Bottom, extreme politics and bananas, the decline of the aristocracy and the rise of the middle-class. Bert is now old enough to understand and experience all these great and ominous changes, and to challenge and explore them for himself. Brilliantly written, beautifully produced and performed with great talent and imagination, The Village is drama of the highest quality.
