Winner of the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy! The year is 1959. Three aging World War I veterans find themselves residing together in a military retirement home in the French countryside. They pass the time on their favorite isolated terrace – gossiping, joking, and generally irritating one another. Looking out to the cemetery beyond, the trio dream of their freedom. Our three heroes (along with a statue of a dog!) set into motion a courageous and adventurous plan to make their escape once and for all. What will their final destination be – Indochina? The local village? Or perhaps just to the top of the hill? Heroes combines Tom Stoppard’s hysterical wit with the poignancy of the three veterans approaching their final journey together.

Directed by Richard Linley
