Les Enfant Terribles’ The Trench follows the story of Bert, an older man wanting to serve his country during WWI, and is assigned the task of digging for explosives under No Man’s Land.
The Trench, conceived, written, co-directed and performed by Oliver Lansley and his lively company, Les Enfants Terribles, was inspired by the story of Sapper William Hackett, the only tunneller to be awarded the Victoria Cross for his bravery in saving the lives of fellow-men but sacrificed his own.
It honestly doesn’t let up. At all. After an Edinburgh-focused August, and a ‘keep myself busy at all costs’ September (mostly to avoid the hell that is rush hour transport), October has rolled in, bursting at the seams because there is too much to do.
