Flowers of the Field

I remember Kevin Mandry once saying that he refused to allow his work to be read at our last home but one on account of the lousy acoustics. Happily, the Three Stags passes muster on the auditory front, and so, at long last, we can all bear witness to the world premier of Flowers of the Field, which takes place in 1916.

As Kevin puts it: "To a remote farm in rural Sussex, a reluctant soldier comes on a pilgrimage, seeking the music that he believes defines an England threatened by war and worse...and which, he believes, will express both its and his own soul...only to find his belief in home challenged and his search thwarted aside by the urgent needs of another lonely pilgrim".
7.30, Monday June 3rd. Be there.
