Capturing the Enemy meets For the Love of Country
The exhibition held at AGWA in 2015, For the Love of Country, featured artworks from the First World War. Included amongst them were the paintings by Erich Czech, a German internee on Rottnest Island and Edwin Summerhayes, who was in charge of the Rottnest Internment Camp and also fought in active service overseas. Both these men appear in our play Capturing the Enemy, so we worked on a bit of cross-promotion with AGWA who featured the play on their Facebook and Twitter sites and in turn the Rottnest Island Authority promoted the AGWA exhibition. Thanks so much to AGWA for this support.
