ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

The Just Peace Outreach Group and Iowa Mennonite School are presenting “This Evil Thing” on Sunday, April 15, at 7 p.m. at Iowa Mennonite School.

This program is presented in cooperation with the Center on Conscience and War.

“This Evil Thing,” written by Michael Mears, is the story of conscientious objectors to World War I in Great Britain and the people who supported them.

Michael Mears skillfully performs his play. He portrays a gallery of characters from conscientious objectors to army generals, from prime ministers to world-famous mathematicians.

“This Evil Thing” has been described as a highly original piece of storytelling. Mears uses verbatim testimonies while interacting with an intricate soundscape.
