“1941 Resurgam”
 
 “1941 Resurgam” is a new play which lasts about 60 minutes; it focuses on one family, on the night of 21st April 1941 in the midst of the Plymouth Blitz. It tells the story of that night through the eyes of Vera, an eighteen-year-old girl, who together with her mother, her aunt and a lodger, endure the six-hour bombing raid. In the course of that night Vera comes to terms with the death of her uncle. The play reflects the realities of wartime Plymouth for an “ordinary family” and highlights the resilience of the people. It was inspired by verbatim accounts of the Blitz in Plymouth and research taken from the book “Blitz” by Gerald Wasley.
