Don't, for God's sake, come back alive 'cause we don't want to see your ugly stumps and your ugly scars. We don't want to hear your midnight screams and tales of hell. We all got along nicely without you, thank you very much, and now you're back you remind us things we'd much rather forget. More convenient, ain't it? To have a dead hero. A dead hero don't have complaints. A dead hero don't even have a voice. Jack stayed on when the guns fells silent, to search the battlefields for the boys that could not go home - for the dead and the missing, for both enemy and friend. And amongst the rusty wire and unexploded bombs, Jack is looking for something - looking for someone. He has a promise to keep and debt to repay, and now there is this strange request from the generals. A story of comradeship, betrayal and of promises both broken and kept following the carnage of World War One from the acclaimed writer of Casualties, Ross Ericson. It received its world premiere at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2015 before embarking on a UK tour.
Ross Ericson is an accomplished British actor and writer. His other plays include Casualties, an adaptation of Henry Fielding's novel Tom Jones, Punchline, Life and The Autumn of Han.
