The Unknown Soldier *SOLD OUT*
Jack stayed on when the guns fell silent, to search the battlefields for the boys 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.
The Unknown Soldier is moving, often humorous, but above all thought provoking. A story of comradeship, betrayal and of promises both broken and kept following the carnage of World War One. An official Edinburgh Fringe 2016 sell-out show by the award-nominated writer of Casualties.
