"Don't you dare kill me! I am just trying to help. If you kill me, I'll be f****** furious" As soldiers, priests and light entertainers roam a battle-scorched landscape, young medical officer Anne, desperately trying to reach a front-line hospital, finds herself abandoned and useless. The war is raging between the almost indistinguishable Blues and Grays, but no one seems to be able to agree on the reason why they're fighting... Southwark Playhouse 19 - 25 Young Company present a biting black comedy exploring the mad savagery of war. Tom Basden is an award winning actor and writer, having performed and written extensively for comedy shows on the BBC, ITV and Channel 4, including Quacks, Plebs, The Wrong Mans, Fresh Meat, Gap Year and Peep Show, and David Brent: Life on the Road. His plays include Joseph K (The Gate) and Party (Edinburgh Festival). There Is A War was originally performed at the National Theatre in 2011. There Is A War is being presented in rep with Remote by Stef Smith, performed by our 14 - 18 Young Company. Find out more about the Young Company here.
