Company: Torch-Theatre Company
Written by Owen Thomas, directed by Peter Doran and based on an idea by Ifan Huw Dafydd.
From Owen Thomas, writer of the award winning ‘Grav’, comes a brand-new play written to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War I. It is July 1916, and as the Battle of the Somme rages, Mametz Wood echoes to the sounds of war as the 38th Welsh Regiment face the ferocity of the German army. Dan and Billy, two young soldiers, forge a friendship in the heat of the build up to the infamous battle. A tale of friendship, love and sacrifice set against the backdrop of world in flames.
Approx. runtime: 75mins.
