The Call Went Out traces the experiences of young BC soldiers as they enlist, travel and face the unexpected horrors of WW1 trench warfare. The actual letters and words of these soldiers are used as the script for the actors to tell the stories of these experiences. The stories are mixed in with songs, music, poetry, and propaganda of the time to give an up-close and personal view of what faced the ordinary young men and women of the time… both at home and on the front lines.
The Call Went Out was produced by Story Theatre Co. with the financial assistance of the Department of Canadian Heritage through the World War Commemoration Fund. It was made possible with the support of the Royal BC Museum and the Department of Veteran’s Affairs.
Written and directed by Jim Leard and featuring Kirtsi Hack, Jeff Leard, David MacPherson, and Ingrid Moore. Costumes and props designed by Sadie Fox. Musical Direction by Avery Brown.
