Show Information

January 1916: Bert Brocklesby is a schoolteacher and preacher at his Methodist chapel; Bertrand Russell is one of the greatest philosophers of his time. With the advent of military conscription their worlds are turned upside down.

This Evil Thing, acclaimed at last years’ Edinburgh Festival, is the compelling, shocking and inspiring story of the men who said no to war, told by Michael Mears in a breathtaking display of vocal and physical dexterity.
