The Testament of Youth
Venue: The Forum Studio Theatre
No-one privileged to see Rohan McCullough's moving performance as Clementine Church in last year's Chester Literature Festival will want to miss her one-woman show based on Vera Brittain's haunting autobiography Testament of Youth. Baroness Shirley Williams said of Rohan McCullough's performance "[It] brings my mother's famous book on the First World War... alive bringing out the poignancy and profundity of the narrative. She has a sensitive understanding of my mother's writing, and sometimes seems almost to become the young nurse who wrote the diary."
Rohan McCullough began her career in the original cast of Hair and also appeared in Les Liaisons Dangereuses at the Royal Shakespeare Company. Her film appearances include Derek Jarman's War Requiem and David Hare's Strapless.
