The Most Effective Drum

Stepping Out Theatre presents The Most Effective Drum.

The Most Effective Drum is a theatrical presentation of poetry inspired by people’s experiences of war throughout the world and throughout time. Representing the voices of victims, perpetrators, observers and survivors of war, The Most Effective Drum uses verse from Ancient Greece to the present day, along with original music, movement and art, to create a unique experience blending poetry and theatre.

The production employs a variety of dramatic styles to portray the ugliness of war and the beauty of the human condition and its capacity for compassion -the subjects of war poets past and present. The production will tie-in with remembrance and the 1914-18 commemorations, offering an artistic and alternative context for communal reflection on war.
