Explore the consequences of World War I

The drama provides:

  • face-to-face encounters with characters based on individual New Zealanders
  • an interactive learning opportunity which explores drama elements and conventions.

The Anzac Drama exposes a new generation to the experience of war, and why we must 'let their names be not forgotten'.
