Heroes by The Other Theatre Co.
Davenham Theatre
Thursday 14th November 2019 - Saturday 16th November 2019

Davenham Players Theatre host Heroes, translated by Tom Stoppard from the original by Gérald Sibleyras, performed by The Other Theatre Company.

It’s August 1959 and three men sit on a bench in the garden outside a home for retired military men, somewhere in France, planning a breakout. Philippe, Gustave and Henri, all war heroes, have had enough of the tortures of their confinement: dictatorial captors, untrustworthy fellow prisoners and far too many birthday parties. Indeed, life in a retired soldiers' home is almost unbearable! So, while keeping each other company on the back patio, they hatch a plan to escape to Indochina, or at least a picnic under the poplars on a nearby hill.

Heroes was written by French playwright Gérald Sibleyras as ‘The Wind in The Poplars’ over a period of about 10 years, finally being staged in 2002. This new version of Sibleyras’s work, re-named ‘Heroes’, was translated (with minor amendments) by Tom Stoppard and opened in its current form at Wyndham’s in 2005 with John Hurt, Richard Griffiths and Ken Stott.

Winner of London's prestigious Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, Tom Stoppard's adaptation of this French play is playful, bawdy and heartbreakingly funny.

Performance starts 7.30pm.

Doors and Bar open 7.00pm.

Tickets £10 (concessions for Seniors and Students £8.00 Thursday only)
