– a wartime musical miscellany –
A new production commissioned by ARK Enterprises International to premiere during 2015. A review celebrating the songs they sang, the words they wrote and the men who left boys and returned heroes.
For Australia, as for many nations, the First World War remains the most costly conflict in terms of deaths and casualties. From a population of fewer than five million, 416,809 men enlisted, of which over 60,000 were killed and 156,000 wounded, gassed, or taken prisoner.
This is their story in song, words, laughter and tears. A tribute to those men who fought for their King and Country.
