Green Curtain Theatre

Traitors, Cads and Cowards

Wandsworth Prison. Summer 1916. The Easter Rising in Dublin has been crushed, its leaders executed. The Somme Offensive, where a million men will die or be wounded, is about to begin.

In the military wing of Wandsworth Prison, Liam, Irish Volunteer from the Rising, is bunked in with British army deserter Alfred, veteran of the trenches of Verdun, and conscientious objector Henry. Can these three very different men - all 'traitors to the King' - find any common cause with each other?

Written by Martin McNamara. Liam is played by Aonghus Weber, Alfred by Aidan Casey and Henry by Benedict Waring. Directed by Anne Curtis.

The performance will include rehearsed readings of monologues written by Wandsworth Prisoners in response to the play.

Supported by WAF through Wandsworth Grant Fund.
