Timothy Findley’s The Wars adapted by Dennis Garnhum

 

Directed by Lois Anderson

Adapted for the stage in 2007 by Dennis Garnhum (MFA Directing, 1993), Timothy Findley’s The Wars, his 1977 novel that won the Governor General’s Award for English Language Fiction, retains its beautifully poetic storytelling.

When Robert Ross, a tender-hearted idealist, trades his comfortable Canadian life for the nightmare world of trench warfare in World War I, we watch his slow unravelling. Timothy Findley’s The Wars takes us deep inside the mind of a soldier and catapults us into the bloody battlefield showing us cruelty, heroism, terror and honour.
