The Unreturning

I want to return to my home. 

A British Northern Coastal town. Three young men are coming home from war. Their stories, set at different times over the last 100 years, are beautifully interwoven in this compelling new play by Anna Jordan.

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 coming home really means. 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?

Warning: Contains strong language and themes of war and loss that some people may find upsetting.

Please note there will be loud bangs, strong language and flashing lights.

Duration: 1 hour 30mins with no interval
