TOURING November 22 - December 1, 2017
On July 1, 1924, Field Marshall Douglas Haig comes to St. John’s to dedicate the National War Memorial. Charles Edgecombe, a groom from the Governor’s stables, helps him dress for the occasion.
Haig is then obliged to submit to an interview by local journalist and suffragette, Geraldine Drover. Their meeting sparks a fierce debate about the causes of the World War and its consequences, about the horrors of the past and their hopes for the future.
