The ultimate 'what-if?' scenario

Eastern Angles present Private Resistance, the ultimate ‘what-if' scenario. How would the British have coped with a German invasion? Set in 1940 it's a thrilling tale of the so-called Auxiliary Units, Churchill's secret guerrilla army primed to go underground to fight behind the lines - a story of the bonds created and destroyed by wartime. This fascinating play is researched and written by Eastern Angles' Artistic Director, Ivan Cutting and directed by Naomi Jones whose credits include Return To Akenfield and The Long Way Home.
