Review: Lotty’s War

Lotty lives a normal life, living with her father, in the farmhouse she was born in on Guernsey. However, life is about to change. War has broken out and their island home has become occupied by the Germans.

When her father is killed, Lotty refuses to leave the cottage she grew up in, and, when an unexpected visitor arrives she ends up living closer to the enemy than she had ever imagined.

Lotty’s War is a tale of passion, courage and survival, based around true events that happened in the Channel Islands during World War II, and is full of twists and turns that keeps the audience gripped.

Crispini-LW12-300x240All the action happens in Lotty’s cottage spanning the five years that Guernsey was under Nazi rule and highlights the hardships the islanders faced during the war years.

With a stunning set, beautiful acting and some very clever ‘time hop’ scenes this wartime thriller is one of those productions that really makes you think…

This watchable production will be a The New Wolsey Theatre until Saturday 7th May. To book tickets visit or telephone the Box Office on 01473 295900.
