about the project

Casting "How To Be Brave" a play, which will be touring.

Synopsis: In 1943 Colin Armitage’s ship was torpedoed in the South Atlantic. He and 13 others scrambled aboard a life raft. 50 days later HMS Rapid rescued him, only he and one other still alive. Colin was the grandfather of Louise Beech, the playwright. 64 years after his ordeal, Louise’s daughter, Katy, was diagnosed with diabetes. In order to distract her during insulin injections, Louise began to tell the story of Colin’s bravery and determination to survive. Katy has said that Grandad Colin's story inspired her to carry on when she wanted to give up and die: "If Grandad Colin can survive an ordeal like that, I can do anything. I can do these injections".
