Last Post, The - One Act Play Scripts

The narrative describes the love affair and marriage of Alick and Molly Merrick, a young couple caught up in the events of the Great War. At first Alick tries not to get involved, but in the end decides that he has to take part. In a series of scenes taken from personal diaries and War Office accounts, and using authentic sounds and music of the time, the playwright gives a moving and vivid portrayal of the young couple's lives and of the events leading up to Alick's fateful dawn patrol on 10 September 1916, at Leuze Wood, on the Somme.
