Want to experience doing your bit? Meet and hear from characters involved in the WWI war effort such as a field nurse, a coastguard, a canary girl and the mother of a soldier. Audience members are then invited to take part, with a lucky few helped to don the relevant outfit and have their photograph taken for posterity. The Project aims to investigate connecting the present to the past in recognition of our own histories: imagining ourselves as we may have been had we lived in different times. Some monologues may contain upsetting material.
