D-Day Production - Charity event


The Epic Story of the capture of
Pegasus and Horsa Bridges, D-Day 1944,
written and presented by MICHAEL BAWTREE

The Pegasus Bridge Show ! is a theatrical production specially written and narrated by Michael Bawtree for Project 65. He tells the story of the daring coup-de-main operation, when a small party of men of the British 6thAirborne Division, led by Major John Howard, crash-landed into France in their flimsy gliders shortly after midnight to seize the famous Pegasus and Horsa bridges in Normandy, in the opening minutes of D-Day, on 6th June 1944.

Come and see the show in November :-
At the Royal High School in Bath on Saturday 15th,
Or, at Sandhurst, in the Woolwich Hall on Thursday 20th,
Or, in the Town Hall, Oxford on Monday 24th,
Or, finally, in London in the Carisbrooke Hall of the Victory Services Club on Thursday 27th .

Michael Bawtree, an early collaborator and school friend of the legendary Peter Cook, lives in Canada where he is a celebrated playwright, director, educator, actor, TV host and producer.

Michael served in The Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire Light Infantry whose soldiers captured these first objectives in June 1944. Drawing on regimental histories and war records, his entertaining production benefits from his personal knowledge of those who were involved in the operation, as he brings the story alive with words, images and music.

Project 65 aims to raise a total of £500,000 to mark the 65th anniversary of D-Day which falls next year. Part of this sum will be used to erect a memorial in Normandy bearing the name of every man in the coup-de-main force. The greater part of the money raised however, will be divided equally between the following charities to help them continue their work in support of the disabled and damaged men and women who have served in today`s Armed Forces.

The Royal British Legion, Army Benevolent Fund, RAF Benevolent Fund, BLESMA (the British Limbless Ex-Service Men`s Association), St Dunstan’s, and Help for Heroes.
