Playtext: The 306: DawnShop
Between 1914 and 1918, many British soldiers were convicted of military offences, including cowardice, mutiny and desertion, and were executed. In 2006, 306 of them received posthumous pardons. Now a new series of plays brings their lives back into sharp focus, challenging our notions of patriotism, heroism and glory.
Based on real events, it charts the heart-breaking journey of three of the three hundred and six British soldiers who were executed for cowardice, desertion and mutiny during the First World War.
The 306: Dawn is the heartbreaking first play in Oliver Emmanuel'sThe 306 Trilogy.
The 306 Dawn was co-produced with Perth Theatre and co-commissioned by 14-18 NOW , WW1 Centenary Art Commissions, in association with Red Note Ensemble.
