WOS Rating:
From the concentration camps of World War II to the Streets of New York on 9 September 2001, this moving new musical weaves the stories of people who have experienced war and terrorism over the past century.

The show asks many questions about whether or not we learn from the atrocities of the past, the over lapping of these characters from different time periods really heightened this point. A very thought provoking production with a really strong score by Ian Hammond Brown that worked very well with the piece.

At times the staging is a little messy and some of the performances towards the front of the stage are hard to see from anyone more than two rows back. The men at times were a little unbelievable but the female cast members definitely made up for it with some outstanding performances from Maggie Brown and Vicki Robertson in particular.

Overall, a good show with some moving performances that has a really interesting point to make.
