A one act drama, though performing groups may wish to add an interval. Single prison cell setting, and some strong language.
During the Great War, an army deserter, a conscientious objector and an IRA soldier share a cell. They play out their respective journeys to prison and relate the horrors of the period. Liam, an Irish rebel arrested after the Easter Rising in Dublin, has been transported to the military wing of London's Wandsworth Prison for questioning. He is bunked in with Alfred, a shell-shocked veteran of the trenches up on desertion charges. Their other cell mate is Henry, conscientious objector, court martialed for refusing his call up papers. Can three very different 'Traitors to the King' find common ground?
