‘Why go where you’re not wanted?’ So asks a gay theatre maker, who puts down the bottle to pick up a gun, recklessly joining the British Army whilst the LGBT+ ban was still callously enforced.

Inspired by actual events, Jon Hague, veteran of multiple deployments in Iraq, Afghanistan and Northern Ireland, raises the curtain on the unexpected consequences, often ludicrous, always emotive, of the inevitable conflict of cultures, personalities and ideologies when a thespian goes unscripted to war.

Whether considering depictions of military life, the impact of addiction, or how everyone can construct their own identities and narratives, the show will provide a considered analysis, founded in a unique lived experience, that challenges prevailing narratives of both LGBT+ identity, addiction and life in the army.

This production is supported by Arts Council England.
