A young boy dream of escaping the humdrum reality of life in Swansea as WWI rages. He signs up for excitement he believes the war will bring, leaving behind his family, friends and shellshocked elder brother.
War is far from the boys own adventure he thought it would be and on a fateful night during the dreadful battle for Mametz Wood in July 1916, his life passes before his eyes as he is stranded in a muddy bomb crater.
Told in their own inimitable style, Theatr na nÓg mixes the harsh realities of warfare with moments of magic, incorporating the words of the First World War poets amongst others with beguiling Welsh folk music to tell a devastating tale of family, love and loss.
