Heroes

Written by: Gerald Sibleyras translated by Tom Stoppard Directed by: Tony Hessey

Monday 22nd - Saturday 27th October, 2018

It is 1959 and Gustave, Philippe and Henri – veterans of the First World War – are plotting an escape. They've had enough of the tortures of their confinement: dictatorial captors, untrustworthy fellow prisoners, and far too many birthday parties. Indeed, life in a retired soldiers' home is almost unbearable! So, while keeping each other company on the back patio, they hatch a plan to escape to Indochina or at least to a picnic under the poplars on a nearby hill.

Winner of the prestigious Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, Tom Stoppard’s adaptation of this French play is playful, bawdy and heartbreakingly funny.
