A WARTIME theatre production is set to explore the harrowing Nazi regime in the Second World War next week.

Oddments Theatre is performing The Hiding Place at Maldon Town Hall on Saturday, February 8.

Now entering its third year of touring, The Hiding Place is the story of Corrie ten Boom, a Christian woman and her family who lived in Haarlem, Holland, during the war.

Corrie saw the horrific threat the Nazis posed to the Jewish people and decided that she couldn’t just sit back and do nothing.

With the help of the Dutch underground movement, her family’s faith and a man called Fred, Corrie was able to create a safe place for Jewish people to hide in her family home.

A theatre group spokesman said: “This is a story of faith in the darkest of places and hope, where darkness and fear enslaved and destroyed thousands of lives.”

Oddments is a full-time Christian theatre company, which aims to produce quality drama which is both entertaining to watch and thought- provoking.

Tickets for The Hiding Place are available for £11.40 online or £13 on the door.

The show starts at 7.30pm.
