Kisses on a Postcard, this intensely moving musical by Terence Frisby, tells the story of two boys in WWII. In 1940, Terry and Jack, aged seven and eleven, to escape German bombing, are evacuated from their family in south-east London to a tiny village in Cornwall, where they spend the next four years.

“Enchanting, profoundly moving and delightful,” Charles Spencer, the Telegraph.
