TWENTY FOUR HOURS OF PEACE was a 237,000-word-long act of witness to the work of peace.
It only happened once – on Remembrance Sunday, November 10th, 2019. Created by writer and director Neil Bartlett , it was staged live as a marathon performance at the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester. That performance was also broadcast – all twenty-four hours of it – by Resonance FM. In the course of 24 uninterrupted hours, a team of 48 artists and community members took it in turn to bring to life the testimony of one hundred British peace-workers who Neil had interviewed in the course of the previous year.
