Letters from France – Wilfred Owen

I’ve been performing a fabulous solo show around High Schools in NSW and ACT, Letters from France, written and directed by Scott Croll. It’s about the life, poetry and letters of Wilfred Owen, and is told from the perspective of Owen’s mother, Susan, to whom he wrote throughout his life.

It’s been getting some wonderful reviews:

St Pius X College, Chatswood:

‘A haunting performance of a grieving mother troubled by the heart of a son killed in war.  The moral questioning , intermingled with the gritty emotional honesty  of the tormented mother enables Eliane to have complete jurisdiction over the audience.’

Homebush Boys High School:

“…energetic and expressive…made the poems come alive.”

“…helped me understand Owen’s voice so much better. The performance of “Dulce” was incredible.”

“The way Owen’s letters were incorporated helped the students understand the man and his humanity.”

“The best way to describe the show is dynamic – the performer was dynamic and the poems became dynamic. So much better than just reading words on paper.”

“The students were enthralled for the duration of the performance. We will have this show at our school again.”
