The Man Who Left is Not the Man Who Came Home at Ropetackle Arts Centre in Shoreham, a play about the challenges facing the families of soldiers deployed to war.
Farnham Maltings presents:
‘We started it – pancakes, breakfast the next morning, wedding, holidays, lie-ins on a Sunday, two beautiful girls – and when you get back, we’ll finish it. I love you.’
Alongside Chloe’s future hopes come imminent challenges. Because being married to the military means facing deployment. Behind closed doors there’s tenderness and humour, but as the day of Ashley’s departure comes ever closer, anxiety and confrontations multiply.
‘I will not let my tears rust your suit of armour.’
The Man Who Left is Not the Man Who Came Home is the product of more than 100 one-to-one interviews with soldiers and their wives – where secrets, regrets and experiences have been shared for the first time. A story of resilience, of hope, of change – and what it’s like when the man you love is going to war and might not come back.
Kevin Dyer’s new play, performed by Stephanie Greer and Sam C Wilson with Sam Trussler, a military wife, will be followed by an open conversation about the themes of the play, and the country we live in. This is new writing and follows the verbatim theatre model.
Suitable for ages 14+ Please note, there is no interval.
