TIMED to coincide with Remembrance Day, a production of a musical set in the First World War is running all this week.

The Hired Man, by Melvin Bragg, is at Erith Playhouse until this Saturday.

Set in Cumbria in the years running up to and during the First World War, it is the emotional story of a family's journey from land labourers, to soldiers ripped from their roots by the horror of war and, ultimately, to miners returning to the land.

The action is set to Howard Goodall's music with uplifting chorus numbers interspersed with moving solos, duets and trios.

Tickets for the 8pm performances are £9.50 and available from the box office on 01322 350345 or online a the website: www.playhouse.org.uk/tickets.
