A play depicting the effects of war will be shown at the Teddington Theatre Club, Hampton later this month.

Pink Mist, by Owen Sheers, marks the centenary of the 1918 armistice, blends Sheers' searing verse with powerful physical theatre.

The story centres around best friends Arthur, Hads and Taff who were barely out of their teens when they were deployed to Afghanistan. Returning to the women in their lives who must now share the physical and psychological aftershocks of their service, they find their journey home is their greatest battle.

Pink Mist has been creatively staged, produced and brought to life by a talented young cast at Teddington Theatre Club. With versatile, physical performances that match the expressive style of original music composed by Stephen Hoper, this play seriously pulsates and is totally intoxicating.

Director Nigel Cole said: “It’s wonderful to hear that Pink Mist is now being studied at some schools, as it has huge value in conveying the timeless causes and effects of war through a totally contemporary voice. We felt the full responsibility of respectfully telling this story as it’s based on real life interviews with veterans and their families.

"It never shirks from uncomfortable truths about the realities of combat and is both compelling and heartbreaking. Echoing the great war poets of a century ago, Owen Sheers reminds us that however it begins, conflict is ferociously cyclical and ultimately self-destructive.”
