Over the Top, as a journey into the question of how to tell this story and contract a living memorial to generation slaughtered on an altar of capitalism and nationalism, hubris, and stupidity, goes inside the head of the Last Living Veteran from the Great War to show us the circus within. Some rings of that circus currently in development are:
The Great War Choreography
Elevenses, Afternoon Tea and other chances for food and drink for the audience and players
The Accounting to end all accounting - a parallel durational performance sharing the stage with the play.
Music from the past century
Puppets, servants and actors on stage
Old Films, New Films, Puppet films on screen
