The extraordinary true story of conscientious objector Desmond T Doss, who saved 75 men in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of World War Two without firing a single shot.

Rugby Theatre logoBelieving that the war was just, but killing was nevertheless wrong, he was the only American soldier in World War Two to fight on the frontline without a weapon. As an army medic, Doss single-handedly evacuated the wounded near enemy lines, braving enemy fire and putting his own life on the line. He was the first conscientious objector to ever win the Congressional Medal of Honour. 

Running Time: 2hr 19 mins

Start times vary. Check with theatre for dates and times.

Ruinous by Natalie Seymour

Location: The Lewis Gallery, Rugby School

Time: 14:00 - 17:00

Cost: Free

Seymour's work captures buildings in a state of dereliction and shows the confusing nature of exploring abandoned places where one decaying element often blurs into the next.

She experiments digitally with a painterly aesthetic and collages elements from her photographic documentation to build each composition. She aims to capture the essence of these places before they disappear. Ruinous brings together different elements of her practice over the past few years. She was recently awarded the AG Photographic Prize at the RBSA Gallery’s Photographic Prize 2017. Seymour’s work is also on show at Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery and Wolverhampton Art Gallery until May for the New Art West Midlands, and she has a solo exhibition of new works in Coventry Artspace’s City Arcadia Gallery.
