Our Boys heads to West End with all-star cast
Laurence Fox, Cian Barry and Arthur Darvill are to star in Our Boys, Jonathan Lewis’ wonderfully funny yet searingly honest account of the tribulations, tedium and terror that young soldiers face when recovering from injuries incurred in the line of duty.
Opening later this month at London’s Duchess Theatre, the play will be captioned on Saturday 24 November. Tickets are likely to sell very quickly so early booking is strongly recommended.
Five young soldiers are killing nothing but time when their daily routine of TV, lonely hearts ads and lighthearted banter is shattered by the arrival of an unwelcome authority figure, a young officer fresh from Sandhurst. The camaraderie of this unlikely band of brothers is soon jeopardised by a dangerous incident and an act of betrayal. With charges of misconduct looming, accusations fly, and then the fighting really starts.
Barry, Darvill and Fox are best known for their on-screen roles. Fox stars as Detective Sergeant James Hathaway in the ITV drama series Lewis, and Barry has appeared in New Tricks, Titanic, Shameless and Waking The Dead. Darvill is well known for his role as Rory Williams in Doctor Who.
Based on Jonathan Lewis’ own experiences, Our Boys won the Best New Play Award at the 1993 Writers Guild Fringe Awards. It is brought to the West End by the creative team behind Journey’s End.
