By Bill Cain

This show has now passed. This is a an archive page.

Directed by Guy Masterson

Based on real events, this taut psychological thriller seeks justice from the collision of morality and empathy.

A European Premiere from multi-award winning House Of Cards writer Bill Cain. A dantesque descent into the conundrums, contradictions and hypocrisies of war through the eyes of a repatriated US Army Private… now alleged war criminal.

Exactly how can a soldier be trained as a cold-blooded killing machine while clinging on to the threads of his humanity? What happens when those threads snap in the fog of war? How can we judge those who have killed for our freedoms? Can we truly apply civilian moral standards to a soldier in the throes of mortal combat?

Directed by Olivier Award-winner Guy Masterson (The Shark Is Broken), starring Joshua Collins (Top Boy; Richard III, Almeida Theatre), Samara Neely-Cohen (Los Angeles Opera; Los Angeles Shakespeare Festival), David Calvitto (12 Angry Men, West End; Shawshank Redemption) and Daniel Bowerbank (A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Shake Festival; Twelfth Night, Orange Tree Theatre).
