'Killed' - WW1 Play based on a true story

  • 11 November 2014 8-9:45pm

Following its highly successful showcase in May of this year, 'Killed' will be performing at Looking Glass Theatre's Studio Theatre, as part of its Northamptonshire tour.
Public Comments about the play 'Killed'

"Raw emotion throughout" "Compelled to watch it again" "A first class performance"

'Very thought provoking, extremely powerful, brilliantly staged and performed. The silence at the end of the play was indicative of how strong the effect of the play was on the audience - applause did not seem right after such an emotional end"

The play itself was originally created and produced by the Theatre in Education Company at the Belgrade Theatre in Coventry in the 1980s and is based on a true story found in a book called ‘The Thin Yellow Line’ by William Moore.

Billy Dean, a young British “Tommy” during WW1, gets separated from his battalion during an attack on an enemy position, and is subsequently sentenced to be shot for cowardice. The play starts the night before Billy’s execution, and through a series of flashbacks the action cross cuts between The Western Front and a Munition's Factory in England where Billy’s wife May works.

Was Billy’s fate misfortune or cowardice? It will be up to the audience to decide for themselves.
