Pink Mist tells the story of three young men deployed to Afghanistan. As the physical and psychological aftershocks of war take their toll on the loved ones they left behind, Arthur, Hads and Taff find their journey home is their greatest battle.

Written by award-winning writer and poet Owen Sheers, Pink Mist was inspired by 30 interviews with returned servicemen and first staged at Bristol Old Vic in 2015 to huge critical acclaim. “Eye-opening and brilliantly vivid” (**** Times), this “beautifully performed” (**** Guardian) production matches haunting verse with dynamic movement.

Duration: 2 hours 7mins with interval
