Lest We Forget - Dunstable Rep (Preview)

Dunstable Rep’s latest production impresses for coherence, emotional punch, and the ability to splash detailed portraits of humanity onto the backdrop of a terrifying war. Devised and directed by Angela Goss, magnificently mixing her seventeen strong cast, this tribute to a lost generation cleverly intertwines the songs and letters and tiny dramas of an unknowing world plunged into the darkness of 1914. Best illustrated by the fading of an English summer day on the cusp of relentless guns Lest We Forget constantly, and effectively, toyed with our emotions. Susan Young, Stephanie Overington and Anthony Bird wring every ounce out of their dramatic roles and Grace Reinhold-Gittins and Sam Rowland are simply superb as the young lovers who supply the piece its central heart. I shall, probably, occasionally sniff in a fuller review but last night I was happy to wallow and weep. Those who can’t get a ticket should weep for other reasons. Roy Hall
