Ruth Sillers, Professional actress, reader and dramatic presenter

The role of women during the Great War has been much discussed and studied in recent years. Several historians have brought their contribution to the war effort much more to the fore. Ruth Sillers has made professional recordings of poems and prose by creative women from the 1914-18 war and will present and perform many of them.
