Opening Saturday: The War Play

28 March - 18 April

This special commission as part of the World War 1 commemorations will be a world premiere on stage at Fortune Theatre. Playwright Phil Braithwaite searches for the truth about his Great Uncle Jack, a young Dunedin man who went to WW1. What he uncovers is a truth that has been locked away for nearly a century. A moving and poignant play.
