Letters from the Front by Glow

When Arthur discovers a cardboard box filled with letters in the attic of his late parents house, an unlikely tale of young love is uncovered.

Letters from the Front is a touching and personal performance inspired by the story of a real couple.
Edith Ainscow and Geoffrey Boothby were based in Birmingham and after spending only four days
together, Geoffrey was sent to the front to work for the Royal Engineer Tunnellers below the Ypres Salient.

Over 18 months, hope was sustained and a relationship blossomed through little more than written
correspondence caring, spirited and courageous, their letters are lovingly brought to life through a
fusion of digital media and traditional storytelling.
