NEW '23: In The Forest of Starlight and Shrapnel

- Performance times: 02:15 pm 07:15 pm
Drama Richard Burton Company NEW '23

Eli was in the bloodiest battle of the war. His body - like so many others - was left where it fell. Now the war is over and Shona, his wife, wants to give Eli a decent burial. But the battle was two years ago. And the old battleground is vast. To find Eli would take a very special skill. Perhaps...the supernatural.

Intimate yet expansive, fierce yet tender, Philip Ridley's new play weaves a startling and, at times, darkly comic tapestry of stories, exploring what happens when the suffering of war becomes the strangeness of peace.

By Philip Ridley
