NEW PERSPECTIVES ON THE FIRST WORLD WAR
This Evil Thing is the shocking and inspiring story of the ordinary and extraordinary men who said no to war; a dizzying journey from a chapel in Yorkshire to the House of Commons; from an English country garden to a quarry in Aberdeen; from a cell in Richmond Castle to a firing squad in France.
Written and performed by Michael Mears
Directed by Rosamunde Hutt
