Otherstory Theatre – Taking a Holiday
5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Taking a Holiday is a tale of conscientious objectors and others who went on the run from conscription during the First World War – and of the networks that supported them. What does it mean to be a refugee in your own country? Who will give you a bed for the night, a job…or a means of escape?
A table top and shadow puppet show based on the true stories of ordinary people in 1916/17 and the hidden history of the resistance to the war machine.
Otherstory Theatre is a collective of puppeteers, artists and activists based in Bristol. They aim to tell stories that are playful and political, radical and magical, stories of outsiders and the powerless.
