Based on real stories.
A surprising, inspiring play based on real stories exploring the impact of going and returning from war on the wives and families of the armed forces.
Kevin Dyer’s new play is the product of over a hundred interviews with soldiers and soldiers wives – each a one-to one conversation where secrets, regrets and untold details have been shared for the first time.
He has spoken to wives and partners of armed forces personnel, about before they go, when they are away, and when they come back. He has listened to stories about the moments of saying goodbye and the longed for moment when they come back.
The man the who left is not the man who came home is a story of resilience, of hope, of change – of what it’s like when the man or woman you love is going to war and might not come back.
Written by Kevin Dyer and produced by Farnham Maltings.
This 70-minute show, presented by 2 performers and a military wife, will be followed by a collective ‘conversation’ led by an experienced facilitator about the country we live in.
