PRICE:
£14, £12, £6 for under 15

DESCRIPTION:

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

“This protest of yours, is it really worth losing your lives over?” January 1916: Bert Brocklesby is a young schoolteacher, and preacher at his local Methodist church; Bertrand Russell is one of the greatest philosophers of his time. With the advent of military conscription their worlds are about to be turned upside down.

This Evil Thing, written and performed by award-winning actor Michael Mears, is the compelling and inspiring story of the men who said no to war; involving a gripping 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.

With military conscription still in force in many countries today, the questions posed by This Evil Thing are as relevant and urgent as they were one hundred years ago.
