Fear in a Handful of Dust
6th Dec – 9th Jan at COG ARTspace in London. Tickets available here
On the 3rd September 1916, Simon, an Englishman raised in India, and Buck, a ‘trench-rat’ from Ireland, are alone in the middle of the Battle of Guillemont. Trapped in a trench, one bleeds losing the threads of reality while the other must face the reality of the war. In order to survive the night they must learn not only to overcome the enemy, but also the stranger sitting next to them.
The gritty and visceral reality of the trenches comes to life in this new play which examines how war exposes the humanity in a man, rather than the monster.
