The Unknown Soldier
Jack stayed on when the guns fell silent, to search the battlefields for those that could not go home – for the dead and the missing, for both enemy and friend. Amongst the rusty wire and unexploded bombs, Jack is looking for something- looking for someone. He has a promise to keep and debt to repay and now there is this strange request from the generals.
A story of comradeship, betrayal and of promises both broken and kept following the carnage of World War One. A new theatre piece by the award nominated writer of Casualties.
