Lotty's War at the Grand Theatre

A mesmerising story of passion, courage and sacrifice, Lotty’s Waris a thriller set in the WWII enemy occupied Channel Islands. Based on a true story, this critically acclaimed play is ‘a must see show!’

With the last boat to England gone, Lotty is housed in close quarters with the enemy. As loyalties waver amidst the temptations of forbidden love and the politics of war, does Lotty dare to tread a passionate and dangerous path to save a friend?

Inspired by recently discovered diaries found in the vaults of Guernsey, Lotty’s War is a fascinating look at women’s own personal battles through this period of British history.
