The Gathering - Messages from the Great War

State of Play ArtsThis event has now finished

The Gathering is a powerful new play from Dorset based writers Gill and Tony Horitz, based on letters and other found artefacts telling the story of two Dorset soldiers who fought in World War 1 - Will Cutler of Hinton Martel and Hubert Wareham of Wimborne Minster, and two people closely involved in their lives - Will's wife, Tillie, and the Vicar of Wimborne Minster, Reverend James Fletcher.

Intensely moving, The Gathering is both a moving love story and a message of resilience and hope. These performances will be preceded by a screening of 'Tommy's Sisters', a short film about five women in 1916. Suitable 12+

* Tickets at Briantspuddle include a WW1 tea of sandwiches and cakes
