Edgar Huggins, WWI veteran and the last surviving Durham Light Infantryman, speaks to his great nephew William from beyond the grave in a recorded interview. He talks about how he joined-up because he wants to work with horses, but finds himself on the front line. His account of Ypres and the Somme is honest and direct, but ultimately he holds his tongue. Why: For national security: To save his family the horror? This new play explores a soldier’s untold story, the guilt of the survivor and society’s need to create a hero.

"The script is a real strength... The best history lesson most of us never had... a performance of dignified timelessness and respect."  Wales Arts Review
