Testament Of Youth By Vera Brittain: Rohan McCullough
Having battled her way to Somerville College in the face of parental opposition, Vera Brittain abandoned her studies at the outbreak of the First World War to serve as a volunteer nurse witnessing the horrors of trench warfare. In 1918, with all the closest to her dead, she returned to Oxford and later devoted her energies to the causes of pacifism and feminism, writing and lecturing world-wide.
In 1933 she published Testament Of Youth. This haunting autobiography conveyed to an entire generation the essence of their common experience of war. It was a best seller in both Britain and America.
‘Rohan McCullough’s performance brings my mother’s famous book on the First World War…alive. She has a sensitive understanding of my mother’s writing, and sometimes seems almost to become the young nurse who wrote the diary … I strongly commend her presentation.’
Rohan McCullough, “a fantastically talented and moving actress” (said The Scotsman) began her career in the original cast of the legendary musical Hair. She appeared in Jean-Louis Barrault’s Rabelais, as Antigone in Oedipus at Colonus (Manchester Royal Exchange), and in Les Liaisons Dangereuses (RSC). She has also appeared in films by Derek Jarman and David Hare.
She achieved her most notable success with her one-woman plays, with which she has toured the world. She has given poetry and prose recitals with Sir Derek Jacobi, Edward Fox, Robert Powell and John Julius Norwich. For many years she appeared with the late Sir John Mortimer in Mortimer’s Miscellany.
