Finger, Trigger, Bullet, Gun

18Jun14

Rehearsals have started for a latest offering from Stan’s Cafe; “Finger, Trigger, Bullet, Gun”. Unusually for Stan, this is a commisssioned play, penned by Serbian writer, director and former MP. Nenad Prokic. “Finger, Trigger, Bullet, Gun” concerns itself with the political manœverings which led to the assassination of Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo, 1914 – an action credited with igniting World War I.

FTBG opens on the evening of 28th June, the 100th anniversary of Gavrilo Princip’s fateful and fatal shooting of the Austro-Hungarian Crown Prince and his wife. It will be presented by the LIFT Festival’s as part of its After A War programme. A week later the show will feature at BE Fest, Birmingham in a double bill with “Next Door”, by Danish company Out Of Balanz

As part of a parallel education project pupils at Washwood Heath School in Birmingham have contributed to the process by painting and dedicating 19,240 domino-sized monuments to each of the soldiers of the British Fourth Army killed on the first day of the Battle of the Somme, 1st July 1916.
