“An Honest Soldier never is forgot, Whether he die by Musket or by Pot.”

Summer 1918: Bill Wilson, an American soldier, is billeted in Winchester on his way to fight in the war in France. An encounter in Winchester Cathedral will eventually draw him to a new way of life - and on his return to America, he will become one of the founding members of a worldwide organisation: Alcoholics Anonymous.

Compiled by Philip Glassborow and presented by 2Time Theatre, this new play for voices includes music and poetry from the First World War, with extracts from the writings of Bill Wilson and other contemporary accounts.

Tickets £10 available from the Cathedral Box Office and online soon.
