The 306: Dusk

Oliver Emanuel

Paperback (12 Oct 2018)

2018. Armistice Day. A pregnant school teacher on a trip to the battlefields goes AWOL in a wood whilst on a personal mission of remembrance. An injured veteran of the Iraq war relives the nightmare of battle. A blindfolded soldier wakes up after 100 years to hear the birds singing once more…

The 306: Dusk is a new piece of music theatre about memory and forgetting, friendship and betrayal, exploring what the Great War means to us today. From the 2-minute silence at 11am to dusk that same day, three disparate characters, a string quartet and a choir of voices from the past and present will show how our world is shaped by the war to end all wars.

A National Theatre Scotland and Perth Theatre production, co-commissioned by 14-18 NOW.

The 306: Dusk is co-commissioned with 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary and is the concluding part of the 306 Trilogy, following 2016’s premiere The 306: Dawn, and last year’s performances of The 306: Day.
