A Boy's War and an anniversary

David Michell's book, A Boy's War, about his time in the Weihsien concentration camp with Eric Liddell was a major source for research on my play about Liddell, Beyond the Chariots. I just found out two exciting things:

1) Though David Michell died several years ago, his widow and children are planning on attending my Toronto performance.

2) I don't think any of us planning the event realized until Ken Michell pointed it out, that August 17, the first of two performances in Toronto, will be the 61st Anniversary of the liberation of the Weihsien concentration camp.

If you're in the Toronto area, I hope you can make it. Go to RichDrama.com/Itinerary for details.

Either way I highly recommend...

1972719: A Boys War A Boys War
By David Michell / Overseas Missionary Fellowship

A Boy's War is a true story of a boy in China in a Japanese concentration camp during World War II. Yet it is an account more about children and their adventures than the atrocites of a deathcamp. And it includes glimpses of Olympic Gold Medalist Eric Liddell not included in Chariots of Fire.
