Beaumaris Theatre is on the hunt for talented actors to star in this deeply moving play by Alistair Faulkner and directed by Barbara Crawford. 

Echoes tells the story of Rose, a charming and dignified old maiden lady, living out her twilight years in a country nursing home which has strong links to her younger days. As Rose’s health declines, past and present in her mind begin to melt into one. She recalls vivid memories of the Great War and we learn something of her family life, her time as an ambulance driver, her love for a young Flying Corps pilot and the heroic exploits of her Flying Corps ‘Ace’ brother, through several flash-back scenes. The flash-backs highlight the very different attitudes to life and romance which separate the two generations of young people.
