Kemnay is to play host next week to a World War 1 drama.

It is being held as part of commemorations to mark 100 years since the start of the Great War,

Kemnay Village Hall and North East Arts Touring are presenting “Our Friends,The Enemy” at the village hall on Tuesday, November 4 at 7.30pm.

Written by and starring Alex Gwyther, “Our Friends, The Enemy” is set at the Western Front during Christmas, 1914.

Lights appear from the German trenches, ghosts rise from behind the horizon, soldiers meet between the firing lines.

The events which follow are some of the most astounding stories of the Great War told through the eyes of one soldier. Private James Boyce takes you on a magical, haunting journey through the events surrounding the remarkable Christmas truce.
