Pink Mist tells the story of three young men deployed to Afghanistan. As the physical and psychological aftershocks of war take their toll on the loved ones they left behind, Arthur, Hads and Taff find their journey home is their greatest battle.

Written by award-winning writer and poet Owen Sheers, Pink Mist was inspired by 30 interviews with returned servicemen and first staged at Bristol Old Vic in 2015 to huge critical acclaim. “Eye-opening and brilliantly vivid” (**** Times), this “beautifully performed” (**** Guardian) production matches haunting verse with dynamic movement.

Duration: 2 hours 7mins with interval

    Tue 13 - Sat 17 Jun

    Sleep the dreamless sleep of clay... I am Golem; I obey. Like a giant graphic novel burst into life, 1927 invites you to take a step through the looking glass into a dark and fantastical tale of an extraordinary, ordinary man. Robert’s life is full of dead-end jobs, unrequited love and bedroom-rehearsals for his revolutionary punk band. But when he buys Golem, things change... Golem he...
