This new play by soldier turned actor turned writer and director Jonathan Guy Lewis will visit the Playground Theatre as part of its UK tour.
What happens when a company of ex-soldiers becomes a company of actors? A theatrical band of brothers. Although it’s not a cure all, the bonding, the humour, the theatre of war helps to put them back together again – as a company of veterans and actors rehearse a play about a company of veterans and actors. Although worlds apart they begin to realise there are more similarities between military life and the theatre than they bargained for, building a powerful new world of their own. This is a heart warming story about surviving the forces and PTSD and what happens when you leave the military ‘family”.
The production, also directed by Jonathan Lewis, is a heartwarming and honest look at the world in which we all live in.
Soldier On will feature set design by Anthony Lamble, choreography by Lily Howkins and is produced by Amanda Faber.
The production will also tour to venues in Exeter, Gravesend, York and Oxford.
Soldier On will play at the Playground Theatre from the 14th to the 31st March. For more information and to book tickets visit: http://theplaygroundtheatre.london/events/soldier-on-2/
