This is a tribute to the Australian prisoners of war from 1942 to 1945. A story of ingenuity, humour, mateship and a sheer will to survive. A Bright and Crimson Flower celebrates the triumph of the Australian and human spirit. It is written from memoirs, broadcast and personal interviews, published books and unpublished diaries and personal records.
Six Australian blokes, young and not so young Doug, Blue, Wag, Ray, Snow and Spud, held prisoner by the army of a people whose language and customs they know nothing about: their world has vanished. They take classes in everything, they scrounge, pilfer, improvise, build and conceal radios, and quite apart from building the Burma Railway under horrendous conditions, they organise sports carnivals and end the war by playing a cricket match!
WARNING: Not recommended for small children but 8-9 year olds have attended in the past. Show contains mild language, possible fog/smoke effects and moderate noise.
