May We Remember: War Comes to Topsham

November 2016

Devised by Estuary Players and based on extensive research by Topsham Museum, May We Remember shows the impact of the First World War on Topsham. As its sons and daughters were scattered across the globe in the service of total war, what happened to the families left behind? A Topsham family looks back from 1939, when the world is once again on the brink of war, at what happened to them and their community. The story is told with authentic music of the time, as well as poems, diaries and newpaper extracts.
