From Owen Thomas, writer of the award winning ‘Grav’, comes a brand-new play written to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War I.

It is July 1916, and as the Battle of the Somme rages, Mametz Wood echoes to the sounds ofwar as the 38th Welsh Regiment face the ferocity of the German army.

Inspired by a true story. Dan and Billy, two young soldiers, forge a friendship in the heat of the build up to the infamous battle. When Billy is killed in Mametz Wood, he leaves behind a devastated friend and, back home, a heart-broken and pregnant wife.

Altered by his experiences on the Western Front, Dan returns home to step into his friend’s shoes, ultimately marrying Billy’s widow and raising their baby son as his own.

Fifty yearsl ater, in a clearing in the wood, Dan has returned to lay a ghost to rest.

A tale of friendship, love and sacrifice set against the backdrop of world in flames.

The Torch Theatre is very pleased to be working once again with Owen Thomas – one of the most exciting writers in Wales, following the success of ‘Grav’. Owen is also delighted to be working again with the creative team at the Torch Theatre.

The production will be directed by our Award Winning Artistic Director, Peter Doran (Best Director, Wales Theatre Awards 2017).
