In the final months of the First World War, as the gears of the Great War machine grind inexorably to a halt, as the snows thaw, and the troops desert – six stories reach their end. The volunteer, the girl in the blitz; the builder, the tailor, the American objector; the officer who can never live down his mistakes – survivors in a world gone mad.
A First World War play for those who hate First World War plays, Somewhere a Gunner Fires is the true story of the Italian Front, and the lives of those embroiled in it. Without judgement, without prejudice, and without a field of poppies, this is a story four years in the making, about a disaster one hundred years misrepresented; and a war story for the modern age.
