Chelmer Radio is delighted to be the media partner for a very special production coming to Witham Public Hall in October.  Witham Amateur and Operatic Society W.A.O.S are presenting 'The Flames of Injustice' from October 24th -29th. celebrating 100 years of musical theatre in Witham


Bonfire night, November 1828, and the people of Witham revel in celebrations until fires break out at Olivers and other local farms. Unbeknown to sweethearts James Cook & Betty Goodwin, the flames are about to change their lives forever.

When James is wrongly accused of starting the fires, Betty and the community rally round to provide support. Will justice prevail? Will the interrogators listen to reason? And when will the flames burn out?

This moving story has been written by Sarah Osborne in collaboration with WAOS members with a full folk style score by Franky Garland and orchestration by Phil Toms.

Please note, the show will include some strobe-lighting and explosion sound effects
