For King and Country

“… on the faces of brass plaques and gravestones, in thousands of stone chapels across Canada, the traces remain of lives lost and glories found on the battlefields of Europe. The faint echoes of those lives have regained vivid colour and antic force in a new two-act musical drama. Toronto guitarist Tony Quarrington`s For King and Country is a masterful resurrection of the presiding soldier culture that enveloped Canadian life a century ago, reaching its climax with The Great War of 1914-1918.” – Paul Corby

Tony will be joined by Mary Lou Fallis, Alex Sinclair, Arthur Renwick, Zoey Adams, Roger Clown, Brian Gladstone, Stuart Laughton, Noah Zacharin and others, who collectively can all but guarantee a powerfully emotional performance and lend the audience a most memorable Remembrance Day. Lest we forget.
