A World War I play by Meg McNena

Nature of Event: Mud and Blood, a compelling WWI play by Irish-Australian poet and playwright, Meg McNena, is directed powerfully by Alice Bishop. Gallipoli and The Somme are re-lived; letters of love span the sea; women’s hands and voices are busy. Set between 1914-1921, in battle and at home, real-life hero, Pompey Elliott, inspires as husband, father, general, Anzac veteran, leader. He and a soldier’s mother deal with his vow to look after his boys in war as if they were his own. Potent themes of family, duty, trauma, betrayal, legacy and grief vividly unfold.
