The hit blitz play One Night in November is back by popular demand!
Coventry, November 1940. Katie, a headstrong 18 year old training to be a teacher, encounters the stranded Michael, an Oxford tutor of Romantic Literature and Language, while waiting for the ‘All Clear’ at a railway station.
It’s the beginning of what could be a straightforward love story. But nothing is straightforward in wartime. Unknown to Katie, Michael has been forced to turn his language skills to deciphering codes at Bletchley Park. Katie, who lives with her family in Coventry, has no idea how terrible the threat of war is. But Michael does…
Did Winston Churchill have advance warning of the attack on Coventry? Was the city sacrificed for the greater good – or to provoke America into the war? This gripping wartime love story set during the Coventry Blitz is back by popular demand having received an overwhelming response from audiences and critics alike.
“This intensely dramatic play is a landmark chapter in the city’s theatrical and cultural history.” Coventry Times

While you’re in Coventry, we recommend that you also visit Coventry Transport Museum’s special exhibition War Effort.
Discover the fascinating story of how during World War II, the city’s motor industry rose to the challenge of producing thousands of pieces of military equipment to support British forces, and how the lives of people working in these so-called ‘Shadow Factories’ were changed forever by the events of the 1940s.
Coventry Transport Museum is just 5 minutes’ walk from the Belgrade, and admission is free of charge.
The Museum is open 10am to 5pm daily, and this special exhibition runs from 12th July 2013 to 5th January 2014.
