Love and courage in the chaos of World War One
PUBLISHED: 15:00 26 January 2012
A NEW play on the exploration of love, courage, faith and gender, all wrapped up in the chaos of World War One, will be coming to Bristol.
It follows the difficult choices made by two brothers and the girl they both love. In 1916 Alfred turns 18 and by law must go to war.
When he refuses, because of his religious beliefs, a village girl, Mary, falls in love with him. But Alfred’s younger brother George longs to fight, in a bid to win her love, but is too young to enlist.
R Scott Fraser’s play, 16, takes the audience through the discoveries made by the trio which they never thought possible.
The play will show at the Tobacco Factory’s Brewery Theatre, in North Street, from February 7-11 at 8.15pm. Tickets, priced £7-9, are available from the box office on 01179 020344.
