Tickets available for Startling New Play to Commemorate the First World War

As part of the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War Worcester’s iconic library, The Hive, will be welcoming back theatre company Pentabus to perform its latest production Each Slow Dusk on Friday 7 November at 7pm.

Directed by Elizabeth Freestone and written by award winning playwright Rory Mullarkey, the moving play Each Slow Dusk charts the experience of three young men serving on the western front, linking their stories to a woman today, just home to her village after a tour of the battlefields.

Tickets for the event cost £8 – £6 for concessions – and can be purchased in person from The Hive Information Pod on Level 1 in the atrium. They can also be reserved over the phone 01905 765 576, but must be collected by 31 October.

Each Slow Dusk is 1 hour and 45 minutes long, including an interval. It is suitable for 14+ age range.

The Hive has a busy arts programme, which this autumn and winter includes The Beeline Story Telling Festival and Christmas play Under The Stars by Birmingham Playhouse.

Have we forgotten the horrors of war? RSA debate at The Hive

Join speakers Professor Maggie Andrews, from the University of Worcester, Dr Adrian Gregson RMARA, Archival Policy and Collections Manager and Diocesan Archivist and Nic Millington, Chief Executive of the Rural Media Company, on Tuesday 11 November at 6pm at The Hive for a Question Time-style debate with the Royal Society of Arts to commemorate the centenary of the First World War.

As veterans who served in the armed forces continue to relive the horrors they experienced, is it easy to overlook the hidden psychological wounds of war?

Has the technological evolution of warfare meant that our fear of combat has reduced? Is it easy to forget the horrors of war when you cannot see it up close? We want to hear your opinion.

The future prospects of the human race are at the heart of the joint RSA/Hive public debates.

Tickets for this event are free of charge and are available to purchase in person at The Hive from the Level 1 Information Pod in the atrium.
