Lest we forget

November 12, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

11 November 2018 marks the centenary of the end of the First World War, a war that took place largely in Europe but gradually sucked in other forces. So it spread to the African continent, to involve imperial possessions like Kenya and Tanganyika.

‘Lest We Forget’ is devised and directed by Davina Leonard, and performed by Davina and John Sibi-Okumu. It will serve to recall this gruesome historical episode through poetry and prose addressing the pity and futility of war, in general. The audience will hear the words of Rudyard Kipling, Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon within a wide-ranging compilation which will also evoke the impact of ‘the Great War’ in East Africa.
