From the team behind A REGULAR LITTLE HOUDINI in 2017 comes a powerful true story of survival, loss and hope. WW1 veteran Edgar Huggins was the last surviving member of the Durham Light Infantry. His accounts of the battles at Ypres and the Somme weren't heroic but they were searingly honest and shocking but like so many of his generation, in the interest of national security or to spare his loved ones, he held his tongue. But at what cost? This unique theatrical experience explores the difficulties of being a survivor while regarded by society as a hero. Who's the hero? The lucky one who left his pals in the field or the man who spared his family his trauma? And if those traumas are not dealt with can we ever learn? Or will we simply forget?
