Following on from their successful 2014 production 1914: Assassination Before Lunch, Anglia Ruskin Creative continues the Great War Cycle by Sean Lang with this exploration of the decision to sink the Cunard passenger liner, the Lusitania.
When the ruthless German naval chief, Admiral von Tirpitz, proposes a U-boat blockade of the British Isles he effectively condemns the liner to death, raising the thorny ethical dilemma of whether civilians can be a proper target in war – and whether his action will force the United States into the war?
A thoughtful and moving exploration of one of the most controversial decisions of the First World War.
Suitable for ages 14+
