Salisbury’s Medieval Hall hosts a production of The Unknown Soldier on Wednesday, 9th November. Written and performed by Ross Ericson and directed by Michelle Yim, The Unknown Soldier is moving and often humorous but, above all, thought provoking. It looks at the First World War from a new perspective, through the eyes of a man (played by Ross Ericsson) who has survived the carnage but who finds it hard to return home.
“Jack stayed on when the guns fell silent, to search the battlefields for the boys that could not go home – for the dead and the missing, for both enemy and friend. Amongst the rusty wire and unexploded bombs Jack is looking for something – looking for someone. He has a promise to keep and a debt to repay, and now there is this strange request from the generals.”
The Grist to the Mill Production is a story of comradeship, betrayal and of promises both broken and kept following the carnage of World War One.
The show starts at 7.30pm, tickets cost £15 and are available from www.salisburymedievalhall.com or by calling 07595 228516
