Soldier On

Thu 22 - Fri 23 February 2018

WORLD PREMIERE
by Jonathan Lewis

What happens when a company of ex-soldiers becomes a company of actors? A theatrical band of brothers. Although it’s not a cure all, the bonding, the humour, the theatre of war helps to put them back together again – as a company of veterans and actors rehearse a play about a company of veterans and actors.

Although worlds apart they begin to realise there are more similarities between military life and the theatre than they bargained for, building a powerful new world of their own.

This is a heart-warming story about surviving the forces and PTSD and what happens when you leave the military ‘family’.
