Set in the summer of 1919 during preparations for a ‘Peace Tea’ garden party, Hold Your Peace tells a thought provoking tale of the impact of the Great War (1914- 1918) on the lives and loves of the residents of The Orchards and tells the untold stories of the lives of learning disabled people during the Great War.
The horrendous loss of life was unprecedented and brought devastating changes to those at home and this, of course, included learning disabled people.
Directed and designed by Allie Walton-Robson. Script Consultant: Dave Napthine.
