Details

It is July 1916, and as the Battle of the Somme rages, Mametz Wood echoes to the sounds of war as the 38th Welsh Division face the ferocity of the German army...

From Owen Thomas, writer of the award winning ‘Grav’, comes a brand-new play written to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War I. Inspired by a true story.

Dan and Billy, two young soldiers, forge a friendship in the heat of the build-up to the infamous battle. When Billy is killed in Mametz Wood, he leaves behind a devastated friend and, back home, a heart-broken and pregnant wife.

Altered by his experiences on the Western Front, Dan returns home to step into his friend’s shoes, ultimately marrying Billy’s widow and raising their baby son as his own.

Fifty years later, in a clearing in the wood, Dan has returned to lay a ghost to rest.
