This specific production does not yet have a description, but the play itself does:
Set in a dug-out near St Quentin just before the last great German offensive, the play has the quiet, unforced moral authority that comes from first-hand experience. Sheriff had seen active service at the front. Part of the play’s power derives from the loving intimacy with which it depicts day-to-day life in the trenches – drawing attention to details like the soldierly distraction of organising earwig races, the long periods of uncanny quiet between bombardments, or the odd bodily reaction of men about to go on a dangerous mission.
