And The Horse You Rode In On (Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club)

By | Published on Friday 8 August 2014

This show is a depiction of soldiers from both sides struggling with their experiences of the First World War: we see a scene from the German trench, another from the British, and finally, one man from each side meets in No Man’s Land. It’s an excellently written and genuinely touching story which demonstrates respect for the soldiers who died as well as respect for the audience, who are captivated by the performance from beginning to end. The acting was engaging and heartfelt from all performers, and although some of the lines were spoken too quickly to be understood, it was a very moving and enjoyable production.

Paradise in Augustines, until 25 Aug.
