The Unknown Solider
The Unknown Soldier
Monkey Baa Theatre Company of Sydney, Australia
With a tour timed to honor the Centennial of WWI and America’s entry in 1917, The Unknown Solider tells two stories a century apart: the battlefields of WWI and the home front of modern day. Through the discovery of some old letters, Charlie and his Aunt Angela piece together the stories of the young soldier Albert, a 16 year old solider fighting for King and Country, and Grace, a mother and volunteer nurse who is searching for her lost son. Through Albert and Grace’s letters, the historical war comes alive, and Charlie and Angela find new perspective on the lives of soldiers, nurses and the families back home... This poignant new work explores themes of war, duty, courage and sacrifice.
Recommended for audiences Grades 5th and up.
