• Dr Scroggy’s War

    Produced by Creative Learning at the Lyric
    Written by Howard Brenton

    27 - 31 Mar



1915. Jack Twigg, twenty-one years old, enlists in the London Regiment and goes on a journey he never imagined – nor did the rest of the world!

On his way, he meets pioneering medic Harold Gillies, who saves his life and his sanity. And who is the mysterious Doctor Scroggy who appears at night in Gillies’ hospital dispensing champagne to the patients?

Epic, hilarious and moving, Doctor Scroggy’s War takes a sideways look at the First World War. It was first performed at Shakespeare’s Globe, London in 2014.

A cast of young actors from the Lyric Drama Studio present this poignant piece to mark the centenary year of the Armistice.
