What is a veteran? Survivor? Hero? Mad Man?

After stunning audiences in Brighton Festival 2016, Lola Arias' Minefield returns to Brighton. Six Falklands/Malvinas war veterans who once faced each other across a battlefield now face each other across a stage. Together they share memories, films, songs and photos as they recall their collective war and embody the political figures that led them into it. 

‘Brings tears to the eyes and the audience to its feet.
Tremendous.’ ★★★★ The Times

'...this is work of extraordinary compassion ... a courageous statement about the power of [theatre] to enhance life itself' ★★★★★ Evening Standard

'an extraordinary exercise in the mining of memory and the staging of history' ★★★★★ The Stage
