  • MINEFIELD

    2 November - 11 November

    2:30pm + 7:30pm

    MINEFIELD

    (Argentina)

    A play by Lola Arias

    2 November - 11 November, 2.30pm + 7.30pm

    Royal Court Theatre


    Following last year’s hugely successful sell-out run during #LIFT2016, MINEFIELD has toured internationally to enormous acclaim and returns to the Royal Court Theatre for just 10 performances this autumn ahead of a UK tour in 17/18.
     
    What is a veteran? Survivor? Hero? Mad Man?
     
    In Lola Arias’ MINEFIELD six Falklands/Malvinas war veterans who once faced each other across a battlefield now face each other across a stage. Together they share memories, films, songs and photos as they recall their collective war and embody the political figures that led them into it.
     
    Soldier, veteran, human – these men have stories to share as they take us from the horrors of war to today’s uncertainties, with brutal honesty and startling humour.
     
    Lola Arias is a writer, director, actress and songwriter and a leading voice in Argentinean theatre. Her productions play with the overlap between reality and fiction and have seen her work with actors, non actors, musicians, dancers, children, babies, and animals.
