    In the extraordinary circumstances of WWI, eight ordinary men are changed, changed utterly…

    This iconic war play by Frank McGuinness is a powerful portrayal of mortality, love and loss.

    A co-production between Citizens Theatre, Abbey Theatre, Headlong and Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse


    Herrin's production has taken a genuinely brave piece of writing and made something that is both elegiac and heroic in every way.

    Director Jeremy Herrin and his brilliant cast give powerful expression to the exquisitely crafted script. The deeply affecting production delivers this resonating play of war and identity with tremendous intelligence and emotional charge.
