Event description

Description

Step back to 1917 and witness the secret history of conscientious objectors during the Great War.

On trial for their religion, politics, and human conscience- relive the secret hearings of men who resisted being drafted into the armed forces in the midst of a conflict that would shape the world.

Written by College Historian and Professor in Media & Communications at Goldsmiths, University of London - Tim Crook brings to life the Brockley postman who said no, the Deptford padre who won a VC saving lives in No Man's Land, the Labour activist who made the ultimate sacrifice and became Deptford's first woman Mayor, the press baron who plotted to have the 'conchies' shot at dawn and the Mayor who said yes.

Based on genuine research which is revealing striking new details that paint a vivid picture of life during one of the most turbulent periods in world history.

Cambridge Stop The War Coalition are very pleased to be working with Zion Baptist Church to bring this performance to Cambridge. The evening proves to be a wholly immersive experience and will allow time for discussions afterwards.

Tickets: £10, Students £7, Concs £5
Includes refreshments.
