The Unreturning Tickets

We'll tell you as soon as tickets go on sale:
A compelling new play by Anna Jordan (Yen – Royal Court Theatre, Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting 2013), directed by Neil Bettles (Associate Director of Frantic Assembly) and featuring Frantic’s celebrated physicality, The Unreturning explores the profound effect that war has on young lives, and asks – what does coming home really mean? What is home? And when experience has shattered you into a million pieces, will home help to put you together again, or treat you as an ugly truth it does not want to confront?
Can beginnings be made out of endings? In a British Northern Coastal town, three young men are coming home. In 1918 George returns from the Western Front. In 2013 Frankie is back from his final tour of Afghanistan. And some time in the not-too-distant future Nat returns from an overseas refugee camp to what was his hometown.

Theatre Royal Stratford East 2018/19 Season Part II: What’s on?
Following a successful first half of Nadia Fall’s inaugural season as Artistic Director of the Theatre Royal Stratford East, theatregoers can now look forward to the highly anticipated second half of the 2018/19 season. The Stratford East is famous for staging contemporary pieces written by a diverse group of playwrights, and while the theatre may be on a tight budget, it has certainly found a way to secure the very fibre of its being – a diverse, multi-racial audience who are often reviewed just as frequently as the venue’s shows themselves. Find out what’s on in 2019 at the Stratford East below.
