Love and War

Love_and_War_bildDrama – Relationships – Second World War
By: Fia Idegård & Anna Westerling
Duration: 4 hours
Number of players: 4

This scenario will be like living through a five episodes long BBC drama, about ordinary young people in England during the Second World War. It is about relationships, drama, and everyday hardships in the shadow of the war.

The scenario follows four close friends – the happy-go-lucky soldier Charlie, the caring Jane, involved in saving London from the Blitz, the energetic Dottie, bound for service in the Air Force, and the thoughtful fighter pilot Will. We follow their lives, love, and relationships as they develop during the six year long war.

This is high drama with lots of emotions, from the passion of first love, to the deepest despair of war, and all the different shades in between. Even with war rumbling in the background, life still goes on.

You don’t need to know anything about the Second World War, London, or England to play the game.
