"Voices From the Front"
by Amanda Stone.

"Voices From The Front" is a poignant and stirring story - an inspiring production based on actual letters sent home from the front, memoirs of Kiwi Gallipoli veterans and quotes and minutes from the Council of War. The story follows three humble New Zealand families; from the excitement of enlistment, to the training in Egypt with hilarious adventures amongst the street life and brothels of Cairo. We follow their journey to the Dardanelles, full of hope and anxious to do their bit for Britain, while their families at home wait for news.

From the landing at ANZAC Cove, through the sweltering summer and the onset of a bitter winter, we follow the five mates under the stern eye of their beloved Colonel, William Malone.

The emotional finale depicts the evacuation from Gallipoli and the soldiers' anguish on withdrawing in front of the enemy and leaving their fallen comrades behind. "Tread softly boys…we don't want our mates to hear us leaving."

Our production is in August the month the New Zealanders took Chanuk Bair and “glimpsed the narrows” the objective of the Gallipoli Campaign, only to be pushed back by the Turkish Troops.

'Voices from the Front' is a unique production of courage and endurance, mateship, good humour, survival and decency in the face of dreadful odds.

The production features much loved songs from the era such as 'I Wonder Who's Kissing Her Now', 'It's a Long Way to Tipperary', 'A Little of What You Fancy Does You Good', 'Just A Song At Twilight' and many more
