Book & lyrics by Dougie Blaxland with original score by Chris Anthony

The inspirational story of the legendary pioneering hero – Walter Tull – is brought to the stage in a new musical drama by award winning playwright Dougie Blaxland and celebrated composer Chris Anthony.

This profoundly moving new work explores how Walter Tull - grandson of a Barbadian slave - orphaned at eight years old rose to prominence against all odds. The first black footballer to play at the highest level of the domestic game in the UK, he went on to achieve yet another historic breakthrough as the first man of his heritage to be commissioned as an Officer in the British Army.

Playwright, Dougie Blaxland, described Our Little Hour as “a celebration of the life of an extraordinaryman whose pioneering spirit continues to inspire the campaign for justice and equality."

Combining a power packed drama with hauntingly original music, Our Little Hour comes hot on the heels of huge critical acclaim for On The Ropes - Dougie Blaxland’s most recent musical drama - which enjoyed a sell out run at The Park Theatre London last year.
