The 1928 classic is still as good as it ever wasWhen a boy is flung into the trenches fresh out of an English Public School in WWI, he finds himself on the frontlines with his cricketing hero. The vision of his idol unravels as the toils of war take over. It’s neither pro nor anti-war, but instead, a grim testament to the weight that the innocent must bear for the common good. This is a serious piece of theatre, but absolutely brilliantly done.
Bonus: the multi-award winning Sell
A Door Theatre Company is putting this production on (you may recognise them for their Lord of the Flies rendition), so you’ll definitely wanna see what they’ve got up their sleeves.
‘…it remains profoundly moving, and a terrific old-fashioned treat.’
