Old Soldier

New show to open in Abergavenny (Wales, UK) - 30/6/18.

Although not strictly a Theatrescience show, it’s being produced by Parthian Books and the Library of Wales, OLD SOLDIER is being run out of our office and has been written and will be directed by Jeff. It’s based on the menoirs of the First world War hero Frank Richards and talks about, among many other things, venereal disease, rheumatism and haemorrhoids. It’s based on Frank’s two books, OLD SOLDIERS NEVER DIE and OLD SOLDIER SAHIB and tells of his experiences in India in the early 20th century and four years on the Western Front. It also includes biographical material about Frank never before revealed provided by his daughter. It is intended that the show will tour literary festivals in the UK and possibly be seen in India.
