Just over 100 years ago, British conscientious objectors were locked down in this country against their will
because of the 'virus' it was feared they were spreading- the virus of pacifism and anti-militarism.

Now as we are all locked down against our will for several weeks, Michael Mears has made a home movie version
of his solo stage play THIS EVIL THING which portrays the compelling and inspiring story of Britain's WW1 conscientious objectors.

Using just his i-phone and its excellent 'movie' features and using every available corner of his two-bedroom flat in SW London,
he has recreated his performance of all 52 roles (some with only 1 line, granted) as well as performing all the roles within a film crew!

The story is as powerful as ever, but perhaps with more intimacy and intensity in this format.

This lockdown offering is in 6 x 15 minute 'chapters' -
and will be premiered on Youtube from 3pm on Friday 15th May, International Conscientious Objectors' Day.
The first three chapters on the 15th, then the final three chapters on Saturday 16th May.
These are the links to the first three chapters:




or go to his website where all the links will also be found...

The chapters will remain online after these times and dates too, should you be otherwise engaged...

Thank you, and he'd very much welcome any comments!
