    Pink Mist

    Pink Mist by Owen Sheers

    Directed by Nigel Cole

    When the battle's over, their war's just begun

    Best friends Arthur, Hads and Taff were barely out of their teens when they were deployed to Afghanistan. Returning to the women in their lives who must now share the physical and psychological aftershocks of their service, they find their journey home is their greatest battle. Marking the centenary of the 1918 armistice, this very modern perspective on the timeless effects of war, blends Owen Sheers’ searing verse with powerful physical theatre.

    Journey's End

    The Great War.   The trenches near Saint-Quentin, Aisne in Northern France, less than a hundred yards from the German line.  R C Sheriff’s beautifully written play is set in the dugout of the officers of a British Army Infantry company and takes place over four days from 18th to the 21st of March 1918, during the run-up to the real-life events of “Operation Michael”.  This deeply moving and tense drama reveals the sacrifices made by so many young men during the war, and Sherriff’s characters bring to life the complexities of fear, humorous banter and comradery as they approach their journey’s end.
