Written by Charles Robertson, ‘Til The Boys Come Home features songs and stories of the Second World War. Robertson says the play “starts off in 1939 when the dark clouds of war hang over Canada. The young men and women of a small town in Canada are getting ready for the incredible sacrifices that freedom demands.” The play spans the 6 years of the war. The play opens in a restaurant where the teens are spending a typical Saturday afternoon. It ends up being the last Saturday afternoon of their relative innocence. The audience learns about the characters and their relationships. When an army recruiter shows up everything is changed forever. Their lives will never be the same. Bottle Tree Productions producer Anne Mortensen says, “This play shows how people’s loyalties and friendships are tested, how in the intervening six years of the war, these teens become men and women, and how things are changed forever for them. Their lives and loves will never be the same.” Mortensen went on to say, “This is a very exciting play, very emotional, more like a movie than a play.”
