Miscellaneous notes from the author
Award winning One Act play for youth theatre with various (simple) settings.
Sam is bored by his school history and drama lessons about the First World War, but through his brother's console games, he learns more than he expected.
The play vividly brings to life the bravery of ordinary soldiers who fought in World War One by merging modern virtual war games with the shocking reality of the WW1 trenches and using comedy and tragedy to take actors and audiences on an emotional, thought provoking journey.
