In this powerful piece of solo theatre, PETER TERRY performs in his own play, directed by the internationally acclaimed theatre director, JANICE HONEYMAN.
Direct from Theatre on The Square, Sandton, where it received rave reviews, and The Hilton Arts Festival, the Rhumbelow Theatre is proud to present this compelling production, which commemorates the legendary Battle of Delville Wood in July 1916 and the supreme sacrifice and heroism of the South African Brigade.
David Wells, a retired mechanical engineer, who fought and was wounded at the Battle of Delville Wood as a 19-year old youngster in 1916, reluctantly returns to the Wood in 1970, and finds himself reliving the Battle, in AT ALL COSTS.
The play is a deeply moving and poetic elegy to the unquiet ghosts of Delville Wood, and to the brave men whose lives were changed forever by this apocalyptic battle.
AT ALL COSTS remains relevant and topical in 2022.
“This is a play in which one man stands on stage, flanked by nothing more than a chair and a simple map of a location where thousands of men died to protect a conceptual, strategic idea of victory – AT ALL COSTS. Nothing more than those simple props and Terry’s excellent, passionate acting is needed.” – Bruce Dennill
“Terry opens a huge trajectory of time and space, of bottled emotions and hidden catastrophe […] a work that reflects with carefully selected words on the folly of a civilisation which wastes the lives of its youth, but it is a work that remains utterly and completely human.” – Robyn Sassen
