A young soldier dying in the trenches has visions of visiting his surviving family and friends still enjoying wealthy decadent lives in the early thirties.

Post Mortem was first performed in 1944 in an Austrian prisoner of war camp but was never performed professionally in Cowardís lifetime. Written in 1930 when he was 31 years old, it is a surprisingly angry and bitter vilification of the ruling classes who seem to have learnt nothing from the mass homicide of the First World War.

The Guildhall School is delighted to welcome the distinguished partnership of director Lucy Bailey and designer William Dudley in this production which explores the use of video to uncover the darker, more serious side of Coward.

This event is part of:
Promoted by the Guildhall School of Music & Drama.

This amateur production of ďPost-MortemĒ is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.
