The Hundred Years' War
Following on from their highly acclaimed poetry in performance show 'Being Human', Midlands Creative Projects in association with Bloodaxe Books and the Belgrade Theatre, Coventry present their latest production The Hundred Years' War. Three performers, live music and striking imagery are combined to create a heart-wrenching drama whose every word is charged with poetry. The chaos and cruelty of war has inspired powerful and stirring poetry, and The Hundred Years' War draws on poems written from the last hundred years (1914 to 2013), by poets writing as combatants on opposite sides, victims or anguished witnesses. Presenting forty extraordinary poems from the anthology The Hundred Years' War by Bloodaxe Books, this brand new production fuses poetry and theatre to create a distinctive and deeply moving portrayal of life under fire.
