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.
