Over a hundred years ago, the ‘war to end all wars’ came to an end. You’re invited to a moving musical and epistolary commemoration of the first World War. This will feature contemporary and historical songs led by Harrow Fair with very special guests from the Canadian musical and theatrical spheres who will bring to life the voices from the past.

Conceived, Written and Directed by Miranda Mulholland 
Sound Direction by Andrew Penner
Dramaturgy by Vikki VanSickle
Title Design by Laura Warren

Letters from the Great War was originally developed and presented by Soulpepper Theatre Company, 2018

Harrow Fair is a veritable Canadian powerhouse of hoof-thumping, soul-wrenching, transcendent Americana. The band is the merging talents of two acclaimed artists, Andrew Penner and Miranda Mulholland, who have created a bold new sound combining searing vocals, heavy kick drum, rootsy guitar and scorching fiddle

Performance is approximately 60 minutes with no intermission.
