Hundreds watch Grazier tribute play
A moving and powerful outdoor performance in Tamworth town
centre on Tuesday paid tribute to war hero Colin Grazier - on the
70th anniversary of his death.
More than 200 people followed the cast of Colin Grazier Enigma
around the town, with scenes acted out in a number of locations,
showing the final days of Colin Grazier's life.
The dramatic final act was staged in St Editha's Square - under
the three anchors statue which was erected in memory of Colin
Grazier and his brave fellow sailors.
Colin Grazier Enigma is a brand-new work by
Staffordshire Poet Laureate Mal Dewhirst. It was initiated by
Tamworth Borough Council’s Arts & Events team, based at
Tamworth Assembly Rooms and performed by Tamworth Theatre
Company and Tamworth Contemporary Dance Company.
The production was co-directed by Mal and
Simon Quinn, and set to a moody and dramatic original score
composed by Jimi Dewhirst.
