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.
