*Newhaven EARLY BIRD OFFER £10 - ends on 10th June when price goes up to £12*


Award winning actor Ross Ericson’s sell-out and critically acclaimed show of comradeship, betrayal and of promises both broken and kept following the carnage of World War One. Dorset-born Ericson uses his military experience and family stories to give this piece a truly authentic voice


Jack stayed on when the guns fell silent, to search the battlefields for the boys that could not go home - for the dead and the missing, for both enemy and friend.  And amongst the rusty wire and unexploded bombs Jack is looking for something – looking for someone. He has a promise to keep and debt to repay, and now there is this strange request from the generals.
