A Lancaster bomber crashes in Holland in 1942. The injured crew is forced to seek shelter in the basement of a deserted school, as the German army searches above them. The airmen survive with comradely humour, but as the cracks begin to show they must use all their initiative to preserve their sanity. Only by turning truth into legend can they face the horror of their situation. Originally performed under the name of The Legend of Squadron 463, this was voted into the top five of the Guardian People's Choice of Edinburgh Festival 2001. Researched with the Imperial War Museum and bomber veterans.
