This Evil Thing : Michael Mears
"This Evil Thing is written & performed by Michael Mears and presented by North Country Theatre.
January 1916. Bertrand Russell is one of the greatest mathematicians of his time. Bert Brocklesby is a young schoolteacher and Methodist preacher. When military conscription is brought in, their worlds are turned upside down.
This Evil Thing is the compelling and inspiring story of the men who said no to war. From a chapel in Yorkshire to the House of Commons, from a cell in Richmond Castle to a firing squad in France, the questions raised here are as relevant and urgent as they were 100 years ago.
This highly original piece of storytelling, another striking new piece of drama from North Country Theatre, uses verbatim testimonies, a multi-layered interactive soundscape and vivid visual imagery."
