Between the Crosses - UK

Monday, 5 March 2018 to Saturday, 17 March 2018
Adelaide Fringe

A true story and powerful metaphysical dialogue between the living and the dead.

Directed by Daniel Llewellyn-Williams, who wowed Adelaide '17 audiences with “A Regular Little Houdini”, Will Huggins, great nephew of WW1 veteran Edgar Huggins, the last surviving Durham Light Infantryman, channels his great-uncle through a private interview recorded just prior to his death...

Upon his fortunate return from his service, Private Huggins held his tongue despite the horror he'd witnessed. Now he speaks to us from beyond the grave.
Having joined up “to work with horses” Private Huggins found himself on the front line and witnessed, first-hand, the horror and carnage of Ypres and The Somme… His final account is brutally honest, uncompromising and astoundingly direct… It is the soldier’s untold story… the story he could not tell until now…

A sell-out hit at Edinburgh 2017, this unique theatrical experience questions society’s need to create heroes to assuage the guilt and horror of conflict, and invites us to truly comprehend the trauma & guilt of the survivors.

Part 4  of Guy Masterson’s #4LestWeForget series.

"The script is a real strength... The best history lesson most of us never had... a performance of dignified timelessness and respect."  Wales Arts Review

His detailed and rapid-fire account of the entire time that his uncle's regiment spent at the front,.. almost makes one's head spin. You have to see this sensational scene to believe it.... This is a wonderful, warm tribute to one of the many who went to war in 1914, and one of the few who returned, and Will Huggins is sensational, both as the writer and as the performer of this remarkable work"
