The play explores a number of issues relevant both at the time and today, questioning peoples morality and attitudes to war. Some of the issues discussed is the inequality towards women 'MAY: At Paxtons they don't pay you what they pay a man do they?', and how much you are for. The Accrington Pals is a revelation. It chronicles in the round a vital piece of 20th-century history, showing the battlefield but concentrating on civilian life. It goes beyond documentary, drawing on a visionary stage vocabulary and creating individual stories that are both desolating and stirring. >>> Accrington Acorn Trail Leaflet [PDF] Distance (miles) 2.
