A world premiere! Wednesday 30th July – Saturday 2nd August
Born in Gloucestershire in 1888, F.W. Harvey became one of England’s most popular war poets, writing much of his work during the Great War. To mark the centenary of the start of World War I, the Everyman Theatre presents a brand new adaptation of Harvey’s unpublished novel Will Harvey’s War.
The Everyman’s professional company of actors will appear alongside local performers and musicians to create this romantic and epic tale of Gloucestershire, the battle of the Somme and a final attempt at escape through the countryside of Westphalia.
This production marks the official launch of “Gloucestershire Remembers World War I” – a programme of work presented by the Everyman Theatre, The Wilson Cheltenham Art Gallery and Museum, The History Press, Gloucestershire Archives and the Soldiers of Gloucestershire Museum.
