Based on letters, diaries, photographs and other research material, this new play reflects on the feelings and concerns of four people living in East Dorset after the Armistice: Sir John Hanham of Deans Court and Samuel Durrant, who were both injured and survived their wounds, local doctor, Dr E Kaye Le Fleming, who served in the Royal Army Medical Corps, and Eliza Burdon, of Pilford, whose son was killed in action and who worked as a washerwoman for many local families.

The production, written by Gill Horitz and Tony Horitz of State of Play Arts, has been commissioned by the Priest's House Museum and Garden, as part of its 'The One Hundred Year Heritage of the First World War for Wimborne and East Dorset' project, funded by the Heritage Fund.

The play will take place in the dining room at Deans Court in Wimborne, home to the Hanham family for nearly 500 years.

Tickets £9 (£7 concessions/children - suitable for ages 12+) available from Wimborne Tourist Information Centre or on 01202 886116 (booking essential)
