Hallowed Ground by Carolyn Bock & Helen Hopkins – Army at the Fringe, Edinburgh
Four women combine stories of women doctors in war, from First World War to the 21st century. The writers have uncovered some little known stories, which include the pioneering women who served foreign allies when the British Army refused them. The fight for recognition continues to Dunkirk, Rwanda, Iraq and Afghanistan, and the only way to prove yourself is to save lives. Performances are effective, but the show is best viewed as a set of oral histories.
