War Brides by Marion Craig Wentworth (14-16 May 2015)
Warehouse Studio Theatre
Europe is at war. The young women of a small rural village in an unnamed country are being strongly encouraged to become “war brides” – to marry the young men going into battle and produce the next generation of soldiers for the Empire. But what happens when some of them refuse?
Marion Craig Wentworth’s play was a runaway success in America in 1915 and made into a 1916 film before being banned when the USA joined World War I.
The play is directed by Conrad Toft and stars Peyton Cimino, Izzy Poston, Joanna Patrick, Richard Daly, Amanda E. Ekdahl, Gareth Lewis & Andy Blumenthal.
Tickets (€8) can be booked at http://thelittleboxoffice.
ECC Brussels will also be taking this one-act play to the FEATS (Festival of European Anglophone Theatrical Society) in Hamburg on 23 May 2015.
