With Edinburgh Fringe coming up it is time to start deciding which plays are top of your ‘must see’ list from the never-ending programme. Let me tempt you with this little gem, ‘Go To Your God Like A Soldier’ a 55 minute brand new play written by Andrew Keatley and presented by quirky theatre company DELIRIUM.
The cast have just completed an exclusive short London run in the deserted Old Vic Tunnels at Waterloo station where audiences packed into the damp space to catch a glimpse of this innovative piece.
“Set in Afghanistan, Go To Your God Like A Soldier tells the tale of four soldiers who barricade themselves inside a room for protection. While monitoring insurgent activities outside, pressure to make a decision rises. The complex bond between soldiers on the front line is contrasted with flashes of life back home – and when the unexpected happens, how do these ordinary people deal with an extraordinary situation?”
‘Go To Your God Like A Soldier’ is an intense piece of theatre that hopes to excite audiences as well as educate us about the stories lost at war.
