Dead Men’s Wars



Dead Men’s Wars is a vital, new theatre work developed by Long Cloud Youth Theatre in collaboration with Canberra Youth Theatre, Australia. It explores the place of young people within the ANZAC legacy in both Australia and New Zealand, and the evolution of our relationship over the past century.

Dead Men’s Wars is a fast-moving, contemporary perspective of the ANZAC traditions, for this generation – boldly challenging ANZAC mythology and interrogating gender inequities, through a multi-dimensional manipulation of time, space, memory and art. This brand new work by 2014 Bruce Mason Playwriting Award winner, Ralph McCubbin Howell (NZ) will reinvigorate audiences to redefine the relevance of the ANZAC spirit for the next century, as we re-connect Australia and New Zealand voices to the ANZAC narrative.
