About Etta’s War

ETTA’S WAR
A new play by award winning playwright Jack Dickson celebrates Women of Haghill now and 100 years ago!
Part of heritage and arts community project
Salute! Home Front Heroines of Haghill 1919-2019

Etta's War is a story of the women and men who fought their own battles on the Home Front and whose lives were changed forever by the war that was supposed to end all wars. Inspired by real women and using material generated during the workshops’ participants, “Etta's War” involves professional actors, spoken chorus made of local people young musicians and singers. One hundred years on, with conflicts continuing throughout the world, their stories remain relevant to us all and reflect the cultural diversity of those affected by any war.

"Etta’s War is a salute to the women of Haghill. It's also a celebration of the women in my life – the women in ALL our lives – because their strength and sacrifice make us the men and women, boys and girls we are today"
Jack Dickson

After the performance, the audience is invited to stay for some refreshments whilst exploring a Peacebuilding Exhibition prepared by local residents.
