This hard-hitting new play by Michael Mears is a searing account of how conscientious objectors were treated during the First World War.

Drawn from historical documentation and verbatim testimonies of the time, Mears plays a host of characters from Henry Asquith to soldiers, Bertrand Russell to objectors, with locations ranging from a prison cell in Kent to a firing squad in France.

Described as a force of nature, Mears is an acknowledged master of the one-man show whose performance here is utterly compelling.
