SUR­VIV­ING PASSCHENDAELE

North & South - - Public Trust Promotion -

The tal­ented Jan Bol­well (ac­tor, dancer, singer, play­wright) plays her ado­les­cent self, en­cour­ag­ing her grand­fa­ther Arthur Gar­diner to talk about World War I and how he sur­vived Passchendaele in Bill Massey’s Tourists (Arts on Tour, na­tion­wide, Au­gust 31-Oc­to­ber 1). A young sol­dier in the Otago Mounted Ri­fles, Arthur was one of “Bill Massey’s tourists” – named after Wil­liam “Bill” Massey, who was New Zealand’s prime min­is­ter at the time.
