Fang a les costelles
Author: Gerard Vázquez
On 7 November 1920, four British soldiers who were downed in combat at the front in the First World War and had not been identified were disinterred and transferred to a military chapel in the village of Saint-Pol-sur-Ternoise (Pas de Calais, France). The plan was to choose, at random, the remains of one of the soldiers to deposit them in a commemorative tomb in Westminster Abbey and thus create the first Grave of the Unknown Soldier. Three of the four soldiers who died are revived on stage and dispute the privilege of being the chosen one.
In 2020, the 1st centenary of these events is commemorated.
