Found “This Evil Thing” in the priory

I needed to get away from my desk.  I wandered round to the Lancaster Priory and had a look around.  I had not appreciated it is a parish church, which explains the bell-ringing at funny times in the week: weddings!

I mostly studied the history of the place which is fascinating. But I also went through the notices and leaflets, as is my wont.  And amongst them I found something I had not seen in the Tourist Office or museum.  A show called This Evil Thing to be performed in Lancaster in a few days.

It is a one-man play about conscientious objectors in The Great War.

But since I spent so much time sitting quietly in a pew, I think I needed some quiet, some solitude.  However, I intend to see this play.
