Monday, October 15th A Special EnrichMint Event Reading of The Conquering Hero by Allan Monkhouse THE CONQUERING HERO is a bracing examination of objection to war in 1914 and the war’s psychological aftermath. In the play, a young artist stuns his family by objecting to the war—then, on a whim, he joins the army anyway. When he returns home, he is so shell-shocked he cannot bear to be celebrated as “the conquering hero”—something his family and community cannot comprehend. Written in the early years of the war, Monkhouse opted not to have the play published until 1923, knowing the world would need to catch up to his controversial arguments. The next year, the play opened on the West End and was hailed as “nothing else than a great play, ” making its author a household name to London playgoers. Join fellow Mint friends and historian George Robb, author of “British Culture and the First World War” for dinner at Etcetera Etcetera on West 44th St. Enjoy a delicious meal while Dr. Robb prepares you for the reading at the Mint. The reading will be followed by cookies and coffee with the cast.
