Between the Crosses

By Will Huggins / Flying Bridge Theatre Company

Edgar Huggins, WWI veteran and the last surviving Durham Light Infantryman, speaks to his great nephew William from beyond the grave in a recorded interview. He talks about how he joined up because he wanted to work with horses, but found himself on the front line. His account of Ypres and the Somme is honest, shocking and direct. He held his tongue in life… for national security and to spare his family the horror.

This new play explores the guilt of the survivor and society’s need to create a hero.

Suitable for age 12+
