Coming to the CTG stage in March 2019 —
Heroes is a 2005 translation into English and adaptation of the 2003 French play Le Vent Des Peupliers by Gérald Sibleyras.
“A play about camaraderie, hope and small acts of heroism”
Gustave, Philippe, and Henri – war heroes, all – are plotting an escape. They’ve had enough of the tortures of their confinement: dictatorial captors, untrustworthy fellow prisoners, and far too many birthday parties. Indeed, life in a retired soldiers’ home is almost unbearable! So, while keeping each other company on the back patio, they hatch a plan to escape to Indochina, or at least to a picnic under the poplars on a nearby hill. Winner of London’s prestigious Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, Tom Stoppard’s adaptation of this French play is playful, bawdy, and heartbreakingly funny.
