Alice Mary Cooper: The Box

Dates throughout October & November

Venues across Scotland

£6 - £12

Join theatre-maker Alice Mary Cooper as she playfully examines the contents of a time capsule, and explores an extraordinary last post from the First World War.

In 1921 a group of postal workers in Dundee created a unique time capsule as a memorial to those who had died in The Great War. This casket, crammed with papers, lay forgotten for many years on a shelf in a sorting office. It was rediscovered in 2013 by a woman tracing her family’s history and was opened on the hundredth anniversary of the start of the war. This is the story of what was found inside.

Theatre maker and performer Alice Mary Cooper has been given special access to the photos, letters and books inside the box by Great War Dundee.
