To commemorate the centenary of the start of the First World War.
Written by R.C. Sherriff. Directed by Robert Jarman.
Set in the trenches of France, WW1 veteran RC Sherriff considered calling his play Waiting. No clock, though, can measure time as these men experience it. In the period before a battle that may or may not happen, they stuff the emptiness of waiting with chatting, drinking and dreams. But whether they speed it up or slow it down, time is definitely not on their side.
