A new play by award-winning teenage Sheffield writer Molly Meleady-Hanley, following on from “Me Brother Dan”, which opened at The Crucible in March 2019, Conker Kids is the second part of her “Steel City Trilogy” based around Sheffield at the time of WWI.

Conker Kids focuses on Sheffield children’s experiences of WWI and how they echo what’s going on in the adult world of conscientious objectors, the home front and the impact of war. Brought to you by Sheffield’s Hey Up Theatre Company, the play tells the untold story of the war from the perspective of schoolchildren and gives volume to their overlooked and unheard voices. Do not miss the world premiere of this exciting new work, coming to the Theatre Deli in March 2020.
