by Gerald Sibleyras, translated by Tom Stoppard, directed by David Bunce

April 11, 12, 13, 2014 (Fri.-Sun.)Set in 1959 Paris in an old soldiers’ home, three veterans of World War I spend their days together—fiercely guarding against interlopers as they must have on the front—bickering, grousing about the staff, dreaming of comely women, and fantasizing about escape. A perfect combination of dry humor, Stoppard’s pithy wordplay, heartbreaking dreams and genuine wisdom lures us into the men’s lives as we re-examine our own. Winner of the Lawrence Olivier Best New Comedy Award.
