Between the Lines – WWI poetry alive!

Between the Lines is a passionate play about the war to end all wars. A keeper of the graves in an old war cemetery is compelled to unravel a 100 year mystery.

Between the Lines was written for schools. The aim was to create a short piece to bring First World War poetry to life for young people. The main character is a sixteen year old boy, Joe, who lies about his age so he can join up.

With just one actor, the play features a fast-moving variety of characters and locations. Poems dramatise what the characters are feeling, but also place them in a context that helps to cast new light upon them.

It is aimed at students from Year 7 upwards.
