In 1947, Joan Littlewood‘s Theatre Workshop took Ewan MacColl‘s anti nuclear play ‘Uranium 235‘ on a tour of Germany. While they were there, the tour organisers – the services entertainment corps – ensured that they became history’s witnesses. In this short documentary, two of Joan’s group, Maggie Bury & Jean Newlove recount their experiences of that time.
Maggie & Jean witnessed the immediate aftermath of WWII. In these times, when the far right is rising we must be willing to learn from history.
