On July 1, 1924, Field Marshall Douglas Haig comes to St. John’s to dedicate the National War Memorial. Charles Edgecombe, a groom from the Governor’s stables, helps him dress for the occasion. Haig is then obliged to submit to an interview by local journalist and suffragist, Geraldine Drover. Their meeting sparks a fierce debate about the causes of the World War and its consequences, about the horrors of the past and their hopes for the future.

Dedication will tour the Provincial Arts and Culture Centres from November 22 – December 1. Visit artsandculturecentre.com for more details.
