1918 – The Untold Story
While historically driven, this play seeks not to re-tell the landing or the ensuing futile battle in Gallipoli, but rather concentrates on those left behind.
Set in the Adelaide Hills, 1918 explores the lives of the locals; the Football team who sign up together, the local girls who support the war efforts of the Cheer-Up Hut, the racial tensions that erupt with the German settlers and the heartbreak of families torn apart. It is particularly poignant, as the actors performing are of the same age as their ancestors – those who valiantly fought to create the safe and harmonious Australia we know today.
While the Allies announced their victory and the history books were written, rarely is it discussed the devastation that was left for those who fought and those who were left behind.
