Home: for a Lost Soldier started out as a six-month community project supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the First World War Engagement Centres.
Its aim was to explore what life was like for both the soldiers returning home in the immediate aftermath of the end of the war and for their families.
The project was a big success and it was through workshops that the play was devised and created.
Following sell-out performances at The Albany Theatre and The Above the Arts Theatre, London, Home: For a Lost Soldier will be returning to the West-End following popular demand for a special limited run at Tristan Bates Theatre from 10 to 15 December.
This is the company's second project working alongside the Heritage Lottery Fund and First World War Engagement Centres on a theatre project celebrating the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.
