AdFringe favourite Guy Masterson brings the WW1 trenches to vivid life in a moving compendium of stories & poems from both sides of No-Mans Land, featuring exceptional verse from Wilfred Owen, Rupert Brooke, Siegfried Sassoon, Isaac Rosenberg among others and excerpts from 'The Christmas Truce and Remarque's 'All Quiet on the Western Front'. The intention isn't to dance around the build-up and fallout of the war, but to dig deep amidst the viscera of the trenches and reflect the experiences of the men who fought and died there. A poignant remembrance and warning against glorification. "5S A powerfully evocative tour de force. A master of his art." Broadway Baby. "4S Passion & heart" (British Theatre Guide) "4S Timeless and harrowing" (Big Issue) Part 1 of Masterson's #LestWeForget Series.
