Jonathan Lewis will direct an updated version of Our Boys at Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Lewis’ critically acclaimed play follows six young soldiers placed together in a hospital ward as they recover from injuries sustained in combat. Originally set in 1984, the updated version moves to 2010, in the aftermath of combat operations in Afghanistan in 2008/9.
The cast includes Nick Howden-Steenstra, Michael Larcombe, Christopher Alan Lowry, Alastair Natkiel, Declan Perring and Charlie Quirke.
Heartbreaking as it is hilarious, this all-new production takes the audience inside the often-closed world of recovery of servicemen highlighting the unspoken struggles service men and women can face.
Our Boys is running at Edinburgh Festival Fringe, running at PQA Venues @Riddle’s Court (venue 277) from 3 August – 27 August 2018.
