This Evil Thing


Wednesday 18 – Saturday 21 October at 7.45pm
Also Thursday at 2.45pm

This Evil Thing is the compelling, shocking and inspiring story of the men who, in 1916, said ‘No’ to war. It is a rarely told story involving a dizzying journey from a chapel in Yorkshire to the House of Commons; from an English country garden to a quarry in Aberdeen; from a cell in Richmond Castle to a firing squad in France.

Michael Mears portrays a gallery of characters from conscientious objectors to army generals, from Prime Ministers to world-famous mathematicians, with breath-taking physical and vocal dexterity. Described as ‘the Fringe First Award-winning master of the one-man show’ (The List), Michael has appeared in the Salisbury Playhouse productions of The Recruiting Officer and The Magna Carta Plays.

"A moving and dynamic retelling of a hidden story" (The List)
"An inspirational and disturbing work" (Festmag)
"Magnificent storytelling" (Amnesty International)
