The Wipers TimesFollowing a sold-out tour in 2016, Ian Hislop and Nick Newman's The Wipers Times transfers to the Richmond Theatre this September. The play tells the extraordinary true story of the satirical newspaper created during the Somme. In a bombed out building during WWI In the Belgian town of Ypres, which was mispronounced as Wipers by British soldiers, two officers discover a printing press and decide to create a newspaper especially for the troops. However, instead of creating a sombre journal about life in the trenches, they produced a cheerful, subversive and humorous newspaper in an attempt to lift the spirits of the men on the front line.

 

About Richmond Theatre

The Victorian Richmond Theatre, which opened on 18 September 1899 with a performance of As You Like It, is one of the best examples of work by theatrical architect Frank Matcham. The interior is ornate, with lots of gilt detailing and plush fabrics. More about Richmond Theatre
