Your Country or Your Conscience?
1916 – At a time of war and political uncertainty, Conscientious Objectors were alternately praised and vilified. When Catherine Marshall goes to visit her fellow activist – and lover – Clifford Allen at Newhaven Fort, he is insisting on refusing to fight, which could send him back to gaol and an early grave. Can she save him while still holding on to their ideals?
A play full of modern resonances, the story asks what is worth fighting to the death?
