Footprints Festival, Poetry

Women on War

BY VARIOUS.
DIRECTED BY HELEN EASTMAN.
30 May 2021

Overview

“Become as little children, the recuiting officer said…” Sylvia Townsend Warner

The phrase ‘war poets’ usually brings to mind male poets of the first world war. This overlooks the incredible breadth of work by women, spanning centuries, bringing new and vital perspectives to conflict, war, suffering and survival. This performance is an opportunity to hear that work, performed by three actresses.

Poets featured range from First World War poets, including Eva Dobell, Sylvia Townsend Warner, Edith Sitwell, May Herschel Clark and Vera Brittain to writers living through the conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Uganda and Liberia.
