Beyond the Fence

Beyond the FenceT1835783160
Set in 1982 when Mary and her daughter George are celebrating one year living at Greenham Common peace camp protesting against the arrival of US cruise missiles. When Mary is faced with losing her child to the authorities she finds an unlikely ally in the shape of US airman Jim Meadows. It becomes a powerful story about "conviction, unity and love". This is the first computer generated musical.
