Sunday 11 October 7.30pm
The true and extraordinary tale of a very special box, a rediscovered First World War time capsule. Devised and performed by Alice Mary Cooper “The Box” lifts the lid on this unique treasure and finds out what is inside.
The time capsule, also known as The Memorial Shrine, was created in 1921 by people all linked to the Outdoor Branch of the Dundee postal service. They filled it with photos, essays, newspapers and other objects from the time. On the front was a plaque asking that it be reopened on the hundredth anniversary of the start of The Great War. It was then slowly forgotten about, and it was only shortly before the anniversary that the box was found, on a shelf in a sorting office, by a woman tracing her family tree.
Great War Dundee have allowed Alice special access to examine the documents, and the creation of the show has been generously supported by Harlow Playhouse, Essex.
