During November 2018 the Stag Youth Theatre toured 'Great Power' around Sevenoaks schools, and performed to nearly 2000 students. ‘Great Power’ was an action packed and educational history of World War One, how it started, the key battles across land, sea and air, and why it was illegal to hurt a pigeon!
This short play was performed by ten talented members of the Stag Youth Theatre as part of ‘Sevenoaks Remembers’, a festival to commemorate 100 years since the end of WW1.
