Another in the series, The History of the Village of the Small Huts, this episode covers the years 1914 to 1918 and Canada’s role in the Great War.
It amazes me that a cast in large wigs and oversized costumes, caricatures if you will, can still manage to instil a character with real emotion. But they certainly do. So the plays are funny, sad and informative. This is history as it is not usually seen, both because of the theatrical format, but also because it presents the story and the characters with all their faults and follies.
The cast as usual was superb. It is impossible to single out anyone for special mention, as each played so many parts. But I will continue to watch for performances of new episodes.
