1917 - Until the Day Dawns

by Keith Scott
Opening Night 05 October 2017
Director: Keith Scott

A premiere season to acknowledge the 100th Anniversary of the Battle of Passchendaele. This play follows the journey of three young Otago men from a warm summer day fishing by the Taieri River in the Maniototo to the cold and morbid horrors of the River Somme over the year 1917. Some experiences are shared, others are faced alone. Some truths are admitted, others are not. Some dawns bring the sun and daylight, others only shadows and darkness.
