Advance Notice- Return of ‘Remembrance’
Many of you will have seen ‘Remembrance’ in December, a play which tells the story of the founders of the LRP who came here as conscientious objectors during World War 2. The 3 performances were sold out and received very enthusiastically by audiences. There will be another opportunity to see the play for those who weren’t able to get tickets first time round or want to see it again on Sunday 5th August and Wednesday 8th August (details to be announced). The group will then be taking a modified version of the play to be called ‘Conchies!’ to the Edinburgh Fringe. It will be on for 6 evenings starting Monday August 13th at Venue 40, The Quaker Meeting House. If you or people you know will be visiting the Fringe that week the group (known as ‘A Certain Demographic’) would be delighted to receive some ‘home support’.
