The Hills Youth Theatre and 1918

Posted on: Mon 30 Jul 2018

Set in the Adelaide Hills, the stage play 1918 The Untold Story explores the lives of the locals; the Football team who sign up together, the local girls who support the war efforts of the Cheer-Up Hut, the racial tensions that erupt with the German settlers and the heartbreak of families torn apart.   Writer Director Karen Sierp explains and invites Listeners to the Stirling Community Theatre in August to be thoroughly entertained by this particularly poignant stage production.  The actors are of the same age as their ancestors – those who valiantly fought to create the safe and harmonious Australia we know today.
