The Unknown Soldier is moving, often humorous, but above all thought provoking. A new theatre piece on comradeship, betrayal and of promises both broken and kept following the carnage of World War One.
Jack stayed on when the guns fell silent, to search the battlefields for the boys that could not go home - for the dead and the missing, for both enemy and friend. Amongst the rusty wire and unexploded bombs Jack is looking for something – looking for someone. He has a promise to keep and a debt to repay, and now there is this strange request from the generals.
