CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)
Once you've seen that explosive violence - that pink mist - how can you go back again? Lyrical and devastating, this award-winning verse drama is about three young soldiers from Bristol who are deployed to Afghanistan. Pulling no punches, it weaves their experiences together, setting war-torn trauma against the backdrop of their everyday lives and examines both the physical and psychological fractures they bring home. Drawn from interviews with soldiers and their families, this intensely emotional and poetic work recently won Wales Book of the Year and the Roland Mathias prize. It captures the realities of modern warfare with piercing insight and aching power.
