8 - 17 Nov

When a brass band joins up together to fight in World War I, the women left behind must pick up the pieces in the munitions factory while they await their boys’ return.

Written and directed by Mountview alumnus Benjamin Till, Brass is presented to honour the centenary of the Armistice.

Benjamin Till trained at Mountview. His musical film Our Gay Wedding: The Musical (Channel 4) was BAFTA-nominated. Brass won the UK Theatre Award for Best Musical in 2014 when it was performed at City Varieties, Leeds for NYMT.
