Minefield

Synopsis

“I can tell you the story again of the wounded Argentinian soldier who died in my arms. But it wo​n’t necessarily ma​ke me cry now. Sometimes it can feel raw again. But I keep it under control and I tell it like a story.” Lou Armour.
 
Following its hugely successful sell-out 2016 run at the Royal Court, MINEFIELD has toured internationally to enormous acclaim and returns to London for just 10 performances this autumn.
 
What is a veteran? Survivor? Hero? Mad Man?
 
In Lola Arias’ MINEFIELD six Falklands/Malvinas war veterans who once faced each other across a battlefield now face each other across a stage. Together they share memories, films, songs and photos as they recall their collective war and embody the political figures that led them into it.
 
Soldier, veteran, human – these men have stories to share as they take us from the horrors of war to today’s uncertainties, with brutal honesty and startling humour.
 
Lola Arias is a writer, director, actress and songwriter and a leading voice in Argentinean theatre. Her productions play with the overlap between reality and fiction and have seen her work with actors, non actors, musicians, dancers, children, babies and animals.
