“Centennial Sentinel” - Play and Discussion


"Lest we forget, and why we should remember"


Centennial Sentinel will take you back 100 years to hear the voices of the young men and women who lived through World War One. Scripted with journals, letters, and newspaper articles from 1918, this piece of devised theatre is an excellent way to connect more immediately with New Brunswick’s role in the First World War. The play also features poetry written by Alden Nowlan, Charles G.D. Roberts, Wildred Owen, and more.


Centennial Sentinel challenges its audience to think critically about history and teaches the importance of remembering the sacrifices made by New Brunswickers overseas and here at home during the war. There will be an opportunity for questions and discussion after the performance.


Presented by the Calithumpians, Centennial Sentinel will take place on March 21 at 6PM in the Ted Daigle Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public. All performers are recent graduates of St. Thomas University. Sponsored by the St. Thomas and UNB departments of History.
