A tribute to the Australian prisoners of war 1942 - 45. A story of ingenuity, humour, mateship and a sheer will to survive.
A Bright & Crimson Flower celebrates the triumph of the Australian and the human spirit. A Bright & Crimson Flower is written from memoirs, broadcast and personal interviews, published books and unpublished diaries and personal records. It is an extraordinary celebration of an extraordinary event in the history of Australia
"Without a doubt it is the bet play I have ever experienced .... Haunting and touching... I was left breathless and aching inside"
Six Aussie 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 almost nothing about: their world has vanished. To survive they have to re-invent themselves! They take classes in everything from advertising to vitamins, they scrounge, pilfer, improvise, build and conceal radios, and quite apart from building the Burma Railway under horrendous conditions, they organize sports carnivals, mount theatrical productions and create everything from false teeth to surgical instruments - and end the war by playing a cricket match!
