On the centenary of the First World War’s end, The Return of the Soldier is an intimate new chamber musical based on Rebecca West's celebrated 1918 novel.
An intensely bitter-sweet tale dissects the very different love of three women for one man. When Christopher returns from the front with shell-shock, there are profound consequences for each of them, and for their love.
This powerful new drama, with its rich and arresting score, becomes an eloquent treatise on the nature of love, truth, memory and loss. In the end, only an extraordinary sacrifice will restore a fragile status quo.
