Marking the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, the Chaplaincy is hosting a remarkable one-man play exploring what happened to those who refused to fight.
In this 80-minute show, actor and playwright Michael Mears performs over fifty parts, telling the story of conscientious objectors and opponents of compulsory conscription. Michael will be interviewed afterwards by the Vice-Chancellor.
"This Evil thing" received four star reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe 2016.
'An inspirational and disturbing work' - (Festmag)
'This magnificent tour de force of acting - I urge you to see it' (Scotsgay)
'Magnificent storytelling' - Amnesty International (play longlisted for the Freedom Of Expression award at the Edinburgh Festival)
'Superb storytelling in every way. Michael Mears has crafted an extraordinary work and done true justice to the heroes he's depicting here. This is the show to see.' (Randall David Cook)
