A pilot scheme on this subject last year by the University of Kent identified many hundreds of plays produced during WW1. The next stage is to trace the playwrights, research the performance histories across the country and delve into the individual theatres etc.
The U3A having a defined role in this research – in the form of a shared learning project.
This research will probably be of particular interest to our drama and history groups, but any member may apply.
Click for the flyer and a general application form. It would be helpful if potential volunteers could state that they are U3A members on the form.
