Heroes by Tom Stoppard
March 20 - April 12, 2014
Meet Henri, Gustave, and Philippe, three World War I Veterans who have had enough of their dictatorial captors, smelly inmates, and bingo nights. Yes, life in the retired soldiers’ home is just insufferable! So they hatch a plan to escape to Indochina or at least to spot under the poplars on a nearby hill for a picnic. Adapted from Gérald Sibleyras' Le Vent des Peupliers (The Wind in the Poplars) Heroes is a playful, poignant, bawdy, and touching play. Winner of the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, The Daily Telegraph called it "hilarious and moving...achingly funny and piercingly sad."
