A specially-written 'Living History' performance, No Power on Earth, will accompany the Library exhibition To End All Wars thanks to the Heritage Lottery Fund. Based on the true story of Salford man, James Hudson, this monologue tells the story of an ordinary school teacher at the start of the First World War who finds himself at odds with the popular mood. The story, written by Sue Reddish, celebrates his courage to stay true to his beliefs despite considerable pressure, and asks the audience to consider what they would do in such a circumstance.
The 30-minute free performance can be seen at the Library on Wednesday 2 March at 1pm and Saturday 5 March at 12.30pm, and at Salford Museum and Art Gallery on Sunday 21 February at 2pm. It will also be put on in Salford schools during February.
