Delve into the intimate realm of personal warfare, unraveling the profound journey of individuals trained to defend their country. A compelling production that navigates the complex terrain of sacrifice, resilience, and the transformative impact of armed conflict on the human spirit. Through a riveting narrative and poignant performances, the play invites audiences to contemplate the profound challenges and resilience required in the pursuit of duty.
In a stirring blend of heart-wrenching realism and unyielding hope, The Grandfathers lays bare the complexities of military training and the enduring spirit that binds these young soldiers through the crucible of war.
Comment Is Free by James Fritz
Centred around a journalist whose controversial opinions stir up a media storm and inflammatory behaviour provokes a malicious attack. The aftermath exposes the voyeuristic nature of social media and the space between the public persona presented for the world to see and the person behind closed doors.
Comment is Free examines the concept of free speech, the brutality of ‘keyboard warriors’ and the rapid nature of changing public opinion. It questions personal responsibility for the online worlds we curate and the power of the words we choose.
Both are amateur productions.
