A Dreadful Time for Mothers

Concert or Performance

10 Mar 2019

There are numerous accounts of the experiences of Australian men serving in World War I. But what of the women? Mothers, wives, sisters and girlfriends who were left at home to carry on. To eagerly await news of those so far away, to live in fear of the death of or injury to those they loved.

These Readings by Violet&Rose Productions, taken from Penny Bristol Jones’ adaptation of her Great Grandmother Edie Digby’s diaries and letters, ‘A Dreadful Time for Mothers’, raise questions about the price of War on families and those whose responsibility it was to ‘keep the home fires burning.’
