Iraq War puts paid to Chiswick Crusade

Comedy Musical about the first crusade cancelled due to recent world events

Two performances of the "Rocky Crusade" a new production that was being staged at St. Paul's Church in Grove Park have been cancelled. Although the musical was a light-hearted affair it was felt that the timing was inappropriate due to current military action. A spokesperson for the production said, "The cast felt that it would be insensitive to put on a light-hearted piece about The Crusades, albeit one which highlight the tragedy of war and in no way glorified it."

The show was written locally and told the story of the First Crusade in the eleventh century which took Jerusalem.

It was originally scheduled to take place on the 5th and 6th April. The production may be restaged at a later date
