Students from the west coast of America will be taking to a Suffolk stage this weekend to perform a wartime tale.
Parham Airfield Museum is set to host a cast of young actors from Seattle’s North West School, performing Crates of Thunder, based on stories of people who lived through and fought the Second World War.
The play also focuses on crews that flew Seattle-made B-17s from England.
Each touring show is adapted to its location through additional student research. In 2014, it was performed at the Red Feather Club, in Horham.
As well as Parham, there will be two school performances, as well as one for the opening of the restored American Air Museum in Duxford.
