a gREAT rAW

Thursday 20th August 2020

After 100 years of remembrances, it is time to look closer at the lingering connection we have to "the great war/world war one". A debate, with each side saying how 'great' the war was. On one side; a conscientious objector (Archibald Baxter), an antiwar general (General Smedley Butler) & a child of a soldier. On the other side, the royal cousins; a kaizar, a czar & a king. Telling these stories with masks and music, a gREAT rAW dances through the fabric of time to bring us a series of monologues to see how we can reconstruct our relationships with those who have gone before and awaken our perceptions of the past. How/why was the war so "great"? Whose stories do we listen to? Have you got an opinion? As the masked characters return from a century ago to come to life again, they share their memories as an encouraging prompt to you to reflect on your own histories.
