From pre-war Britain in 1914 to the race riots of 1919 we follow the lives of William James, a black British soldier and Edith Booth, a white Northerner new to London. When William and Edith fall in love during one of Britain’s most devastating periods in history they thought their hardest battle would be surviving the war, but fighting prejudice on the home front proves almost as challenging. This November, following a research and development process last year, Home Truths will be presenting the full length production of its brand new play, Lest We Forget.
