It's a nice feeling when something comes to fruition, and a very nice feeling indeed when this is something a friend of yours has done. Having seen this play evolve from its earliest beginnings, I am very much looking forward to seeing it performed.
EDITH blends fact and fiction in the story of Edith Cavell, a Red Cross nurse in Brussels during the First World War. She smuggled soldiers out of occupied Belgium, and was tried and executed for it by the Germans. Later she was used by the British war effort to drum up enlistments.... Now she walks the corridors of the hospital that's been named after her, and where she encounters Eva, a young woman who resolutely does not believe in ghosts.
