Description

article thumb - michael pennington et al

Exactly a hundred years to the day after the Armistice marking the end of the First World War, this dramatic recital draws on the contemporary writings in poetry and prose to recreate the moods and passions of those involved at the time.  The authors include poets Rupert Brooke, Siegfried Sassoon and Vera Brittain, and Winston Churchill who witnessed so many aspects of the conflict from both the military and political viewpoints.   These eyewitness stories will be brought to life by the distinguished actors Michael Pennington and Sian Phillips, together with producer John Miller who has searched the archives for these accounts.
