The Fort Theatre Company in Bishopbriggs is preparing to mark the centenary of World War I with a special show . . . and it needs your help.

The Fort Theatre team will stage ‘The Great War - Portrayed Through Drama, Song and Poetry’ from Thursday, March 13 to Saturday, March 15.

It will give a uniquely local perspective of the war which tore through Europe and beyond between July 28, 1914, and November 11, 1918.

The stories will be told using a selection of letters, photos, poems and songs - many of which have been sourced from the archives at Kirkintilloch’s William Patrick Library.

The Fort Theatre is now looking forlocal people to get involved, both on stage and to loan any relevant items they might have in their loft or garage - from tin hats to relatives’ letters home.

The spokeswoman said: “We really want to attract more 18 to 30-year-olds to the theatre and hope that a show like this will interest them.

“We want as many people in the community as possible to get involved - even if it’s just coming in for a taster.”
