Hell Was Passchendaele at Clearwell Caves
Ceridwen Theatre Company proudly present a gripping tale of survival, courage and impossible choices in the most terrible of conditions.
Between July and November 1917 an average of 5,000 men lost their lives every day, trying to capture 5 miles of desolate terrain and a village in Belgium.
Relentless torrential rain filled the shell holes, creating lakes 10 feet deep where wounded soldiers drowned, horses floundered helplessly and whole tanks disappeared.
Let us descend into this Hell and seek three soldiers cut off from their allies, beset on all sides by enemies and surrounded by unimaginable horror. If they are to survive they must rely solely on one another. Their story is just one amongst thousands- but it is a story that must be seen to be believed.
