Daniel Rainford in Horseshoes for Handgrenades

 

Daniel Rainford appears in Horsehoes for Handgrenades at East Riding Theatre.

It’s 1914. Andrew wants to be an artist not a blacksmith like his father and grandfather before him.

He has great plans for himself and his sweetheart Emily. The Great War, unfortunately, has other plans for the able-bodied men of the East Riding!

As the brutal war in Europe lays waste to the young men of Great Britain, life is changed forever.

After the last shot is fired, Emily waits for Andrew, on the station platform as the wounded return from the front.

Did he survive? What will the future hold? Will life ever be the same?

Horseshoes For Hand Grenades compellingly explores the passions, hopes and struggles of a Yorkshire community trying to come to terms with the devastation of the First World War.
