We Will Remember Them

Performed by Shirley Redpath, Lynn Gray, Ben Foreman, Dougal Affleck, John McEwen, Matthew Taylor and Peter Lerpiniere, and under the directorial hands of John McEwen and Eloner Crawford the evening marked the centenary of the start of the First World War, a war that was supposed to end all wars.

Using selected songs, poems, newspaper reports and witness accounts to try to make human what is to some extent too huge to contemplate ‘The Players’ weaved together the silken threads which tied the rural community of Berwickshire to the events on the world stage.
