Event Details

Blue Orange Arts presents – The Chinese Labour Corps
Original script by Ian Henery, adapted by Emma Cooper


‘They came to help. They stayed to die.’

One of the least known stories of the First World War. The moving and surprising story of the Chinese Labour Corps, who volunteered to travel thousands of miles to help in a war they knew little about. Loyalty, colonialism and romance combine in this new play based on true events.
