Written & directed by A D Cooper
Hurcheon Ltd. is delighted to announce a new one-woman show. Awardwinning
writer A D Cooper presents A Small Dot On The Western Front, the
story of the only woman to serve in the British Army in World War 1.
A D Cooper is a writer, copywriter and scriptwriter. She’s also directed a
string of short films since 2010, including six drama films for Hurcheon Films
that have been selected and screened at international festivals. In 2014, she
made an excerpt of this story into a short film released under the same title
that has been selected by film festivals in the USA and the UK (2015/6).
But there’s so much more to this extraordinary tale: In September 1915,
Miss Dorothy Lawrence cycles from London to France before disguising
herself as a soldier and mingling with the sappers laying mines under No
Man’s Land. Once revealed, her mere presence causes explosions of a very
different kind. Now in 1919, she is ready to relate her unusual adventures.
