LIFT and the Royal Court Theatre present Lola Arias'

Minefield


05 Apr - 07 Apr 2018

Tickets: £12
Age Guidance: 14+ (Contains adult themes)

What is a veteran? Survivor? Hero? Mad Man?

In Lola Arias' Minefield six Falklands/Malvinas war veterans who once faced each other across a battlefield now face each other across a stage. Together they share memories, films, songs and photos as they recall their collective war and embody the political figures that led them into it. 

Soldier, veteran, human - these men have stories to share as they take us from the horrors of war to today's uncertainties, with brutal honesty and startling humour.

Digging deep into the personal impact of war, Minefield is a collaboratively created work that merges theatre and film to explore the minefield of memory, where truth and fiction collide.
