Written and directed by Jonathan Lewis, this funny and powerfully honest production of Soldier On gives a vivid insight into the lives of those who work in the military and their families left behind.
Soldier On reminds us that, whilst the memory of those conflicts has faded from the front pages, the price is still being paid, the grief and horror of what occurred made new and raw every day by the re-experiencing nightmare of PTSD.
Some plays fit gloriously into their surroundings. The Hope Theatre, a dark little room above a pub, captured perfectly the essence of, well, a dark room above a pub. Only this one is a brothel. Set in contemporary London, Ollie and Blue are doomed to circle the same small sphere of existence, searching for meaning or escape.
