War-themed immersive theatre in Dulwich

Tangled Feet brings the transition from war to home-life to sharp focus in this new immersive show following two war stories set one hundred years apart. This Remembrance Day marks the centenary of the end of WW1, but for many soldiers the journey home was far from over.
