DESCRIPTION:

Stunning, intense, award-winning show about those who refused to fight in WWI.

Michael Mears – ‘The Fringe-First Award winning master of the one-man show’ The List,   presents the compelling, inspiring and rarely told story of the men who said no to war involving a dizzying journey from a chapel in Yorkshire to the House of Commons; from an English country garden to a quarry  in Aberdeen; from a cell in Richmond Castle to a firing squad in France.

It concentrates on two men in particular: Bert Brocklesby, a young schoolteacher and preacher at his local Methodist church; and Bertrand Russell – one of the greatest philosophers of his time.

With military conscription still in force in many countries today, and prisoners of conscience still languishing in jails, the questions posed are as relevant and urgent as they were one hundred years ago.
