It is 1915. English nurse, Edith Cavell, has been captured by the Germans and accused of treason. She has faced sixty days of near-solitary confinement, interrogation and now a trial. Surely the Germans will not execute a woman?
Set in Edith’s prison cell in Brussels, this one-woman play sets out to find meaning in her trials, discovering who she is and why she lived, how she travelled from a quiet Norfolk parish to a prison cell in Brussels.
“Standing as I do in view of God and eternity, I realise that patriotism is not enough. I must have no hatred or bitterness towards anyone.”
