In remembrance of the start of “the war to end all wars” one hundred years ago, HTC presents three one-act plays offering a glimpse into those dark times and the people from every walk of life who had no choice but to go to war.
The discovery of a mass grave for Australian soldiers killed at the battle of Fromelles and the work using contemporary science to identify them inspires a detective story in ‘Dig for the Diggers’. ‘Grandma’s Photograph’ looks at the war’s impact on family life and ‘After the Ball is Over’ takes us to the outset of the Great War and how people and relationships are changed forever. Even in the grandest of families.
We are still looking for the behind the scenes help. Please contact Bob Derrick at firstname.lastname@example.org with expressions of interest or if you require more information.
