Narrative Eye are casting for an exciting World War I themed play for 2016.

The play will evolve around the African and Caribbean contribution in World War I, at the Battle of the Somme, France.

Set in 1916, whilst WWI is in full swing, the African and Caribbean Soldiers from the colonies are conscripted into the Great War.
