Peter Gill's new play centres on the notorious peace treaty of 1919
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Connections between the moment at the end of WWI and the world we live in today, reminding us that the past is not a foreign country. In the drawing room of the Rawlinson's late Victorian villa in Kent, life as it was lived before the war is quietly resuming its place. The family's son, Leonard Rawlinson is among the British delegation sent to Versailles to draw up the treaty that will come to define Europe, the Middle East and the rest of the world. With the ghost of a fallen loved one still haunting him, Leonard perceives that the choices made in Paris will shape the fate of millions for centuries to come.
