Based on Pat Barker's acclaimed novel, this powerful and moving play is set at Craiglockhart Hospital in 1917. Siegfried Sassoon, having published his anti-war declaration is sent to the hospital for the convenience of the army. Here he meets Wilfred Owen and an intense friendship ensues. Captain Rivers, the Chief Medical Officer at the hospital, is faced with shell shocked soldiers whom he must make well again, so they can be sent back to the front in France. Presented at the time of Remembrance Day - this play is a fitting and thought provoking tribute to the men of the Western Front and reminds us of their sacrifice and the futility of war.

Doors open 7:15 pm, show starts 7.45pm.

He sets his sights on winning her heart, but with turbulence and hilarity never far away, his advances quickly turn to anarchy.
