The Box

Whilst serving during World War I, Co. Down nurse Olive Swanzy kept sketch books documenting her time and the people she met. Filled with poems, paintings and cartoons, these books lay forgotten for years in a Rostrevor attic… Until now.

The premiere performance of The Box took place in the Ulster Museum 5th – 19th June 2016 alongside the #MakingHistory 1916 Creative Centenaries exhibition.

See the below film by Northern Visions which explores the making of the production for more information.
