Through These Lines: 2015 cast

Through These Lines features a wonderful cast whose credits span theatre, television and film — including WW1 epic Beneath Hill 60.

We also invite you to a display of photos from Lemnos. This is being held at the State Library of NSW in association with Lemnos1915 and the Greek Festival of Sydney. As part of the research for the play, Cheryl Ward went to the Greek island to find the hospital sites and experience first-hand the harbour and peninsula at Mudros.

We look forward to seeing you over March and April.
