What happens when the war is over?

"Unforgettably potent."

- The Independent
In her trademark political and playful style, Lola Arias brings together British and Argentinian veterans of the Falkland Islands/Islas Malvinas war to share their first-hand experience of the conflict and life since. Some of them got medals, and some were forgotten. Some of them continue in the forces and others started new lives as psychologists, musicians, teachers, security guards. Today the only thing they have in common is that they are all veterans. Digging deep into the personal impact of war, Minefield is a collaboratively created, new work that merges theatre and film to explore the minefield of memory, where truth and fiction collide. The Royal Court Theatre is internationally renowned for energetically cultivating undiscovered, new and established writers. Known as the writers’ theatre, it opened on 8 May 1956 under George Devine who aimed to challenge and stimulate British playwriting and theatre. In celebration of its 60th year, the Royal Court has curated an awesome programme of original theatre for 2016. ★★★★★ – Evening Standard ★★★★★ – Time Out ★★★★★ – The Stage ★★★★★ – The Upcoming ★★★★☆ – The Independent ★★★★☆ – The Telegraph ★★★★☆ – What's On Stage Runtime: TBC.
