Friend or Foe? presents authentic voices from the first world war.
Three one-act plays, all written during the conflict, each passionate and exposing raw emotions and deeply held convictions. Yet, each tells a very different story, and reveals the range of attitudes the war evoked at the time.
These powerful plays demonstrate that playwrights of the war have a voice which is equal in strength to that of the poets, challenging perceived ideas of manhood, womanhood, social order and authority.
The plays are:
Black 'Ell by Miles Malleson
X=0: A Night of the Trojan War by John Drinkwater
The Munition Worker by Alec Holmes (Lady Aimeé Byng Hall Scott)
Tuesday 29th and Wednesday 30th March
7:30pm, plus a matinee at 2:00pm on Wednesday 30th March
