Dr Scroggy's War by Howard Brenton

About

In Howard Brenton’s epic new play about the First World War, Jack Twigg, 19 years old, enlists in the London Regiment and goes on a journey he never imagined – nor did the rest of the world. On his way, he meets the pioneering medic Harold Gillies, who saves his life and his sanity. But who is the mysterious ‘Doctor Scroggy’ who appears at night in Gillies’s hospital dispensing champagne to the patients?

Howard Brenton and John Dove, the team that brought you Anne Boleyn (Best New Play – What’s On Stage Awards) return to the Globe depicting Gillies’s war against war. Hilarious and moving, Dr Scroggy’s War gives a sideways look at the First World War a hundred years after its onset.
