An exhilarating story of two plucky heroes who sail the Channel to rescue the British Army from Dunkirk. "This is no kids' game. You would be sailing into the middle of a battlefield..." 1940. The British Army is on the brink of disaster. Two boys with the aid of their motorboat The Dolphin join several destroyers, half a dozen trawlers and a great swarm of tiny boats to cross the English Channel and rescue the British Army stranded in Dunkirk. These plucky heroes soon realise war isn't like the comic books they've been reading. They'll need a ton of Dunkirk spirit and a lot of luck to make it back alive. Vivid characters, thrilling battle-action sequences and powerful storytelling combine to bring to the stage the tale of a remarkable friendship in the midst of the dramatic rescue of thousands of British and French soldiers. Based on the book by Jill Paton Walsh and adapted by Ed Viney, whose previous adaptations include the Edinburgh Fringe hit Candide and whose directing credits include Hard Times at the Tobacco Factory Theatre and the first major revival of Arthur Miller's Danger:Memory!
