Adapted from Forgotten Voices of the Great War
by Max Arthur.. The hopeful hysteria of recruitment; the epic slaughter of the Somme; the reeking, relentless mud of Paschendale; the silent, choking gas; the hunger at home, and the stunned and muted joy of victory; all the elation, fear and suffering of this catastrophic era is recalled by five characters (four men and a woman), in a powerful distillation of original, authentic witness statements given to researchers at the Imperial War Museum in the 1960âs. Their collective narratives create a harrowing echo from history that takes us through each bloodied step of the Great War through the eyes and hearts of those who fought it.Performers Matthew Kelly, Belinda Lang, Steven Crossley, Rupert Frazer, Tim Woodward.
