The 306: Dawn is a new piece of music theatre directed by National Theatre of Scotland’s Artistic Director, Laurie Sansom, written by Oliver Emanuel and composed by Gareth Williams.

Based on real events, it charts the heart-breaking journey of three of the 306 British soldiers who were executed for cowardice, desertion and mutiny during World War I (1914-18). The work is a co-commission with 14-18 NOW, the UK’s First World War centenary cultural programme. The 306; Dawn is Part I of a trilogy of new plays, with live music, commemorating the First World War, to be presented in 2016, 2017 and 2018.

These plays will explore personal stories of the 306, as well as looking at how the war affected women, families and communities on the home front.

Audiences will be transported from Perth Concert Hall to the farm. Please note times vary, for full details of dates and times please visit: http://www.horsecross.co.uk/whats-on/306-dawn
