The Return of the Soldier archiveCoinciding with the centenary of the First World War, The Return of the Soldier is a new musical adaptation of Rebecca West's remarkable 1918 novella of the home front. An intensely bitter-sweet tale dissects the very different love of three women for one man. When Christopher returns from the war, shell-shocked, there are profound consequences for each of them. With a cast of six, this powerful new drama with its rich and arresting score becomes an eloquent treatise on the nature of love, truth, memory and loss. In the end, only an extraordinary sacrifice will restore the fragile status quo.


Chris Jenkins (Christopher), Tessa Kadler (Kitty), Marc Pickering (William/Dr Anderson), Esme Sears (Jenny), Naomi Slights (Margaret)
