Wandsworth Arts Fringe Festival

Traitors, Cads and Cowards

Green Curtain theatre were delighted to take part in the Wandsworth Fringe Festival  and to be performing on the site where the prisoners from the 1916 Easter rising were held prior to taking part in the Sankey enquiry in London.


London late June 1916: three men, two wars, one prison cell.
The Easter Rising in Dublin has been crushed, its leaders executed. The Somme Offensive, where a million men will die or be wounded, is about to begin.  In the military wing of Wandsworth Prison, Alfred a young British army deserter and veteran of the trenches on Verdun is bunked in with Liam, an Irish Volunteer from the Rising, and Henry, a conscientious objector. Can these three men with their very different views on war find any common cause with each other?


Cast for upcoming performance in May

Henry  Boyes –Benedict Waring

Just a note to say that the performance last evening was just brilliant.  We enjoyed it immensely and look forward to the other 4 plays in due course. Thank you for letting me know about Traitors, Cowards and Cads and please let me know future events.
Well done and thanks again.
