About

BLUE COW THEATRE PRESENTS

Grandly ambitious, 100 Reasons for War is Tom Holloway’s funny, angry, provocative and ultimately optimistic response to a century of ‘man’s inhumanity to man’, 100 years after Gallipoli.

This is no battlefield-drama or period piece. Holloway’s war is played out in the here and now, in kitchens and classrooms, boardrooms and bars. A big play about big things: Big Bang, the power of words, technology and social media, Edward Bernays, Anna Freud and Bill Clinton, gender, age and class divides, sports-rage, phone-rage and queue-rage, evolution, faith and chimpanzees.

“Why? Why so much anger? Why so much war?”
