The WIRKSWORTH FESTIVAL IS HERE AGAIN:  over 150 artists in 65 venues all over Wirksworth. I am showing at no 30 on the trail map. (which costs £7 per person giving access to all art events). See www.wirksworthfestival.co.uk

This is called 'Must End Soon'. I saw a photo of men staggering out of the trenches, supporting each other; their eyes were dead, their clothes torn. They were worn out. I thought of the loved ones: mothers, sisters, children and wives, that had said goodbye not so long before.  I thought of buttons sewed on with fearful but loving hands, with the literal thread of peacetime lives stitched to their uniforms... I created this presentation with the words "Theatre of War" ringing in my head, filling me with horror.
