Grist To The Mill, The Unknown Soldier by Ross Ericson at Derby LIVE's Guildhall Theatre

Derby LIVE is pleased to announce that The Unknown Soldier will be visiting the Derby LIVE’s Guildhall Theatre.

Audiences are invited to join Jack in the battlefield, where he stayed on when the guns fell silent, to search for the boys that could not go home, for the dead and the missing, for both enemy and friend.  Amongst the rusty wire and unexploded bombs, Jack is looking for something, looking for someone. He has a promise to keep and a debt to repay, and now there is this strange request from the generals.

The Unknown Soldier is moving, often humorous, but above all thought provoking. It looks at the First World War from a new perspective, through the eyes of a man who has survived the carnage but who finds it hard to return home.  A story of comradeship, betrayal and of promises both broken and kept following the carnage of World War One. A new theatre piece by the award nominated writer of Casualties.
