Based on the author's own army experience, Our Boys is both searingly honest and explosively funny. Five young soldiers are killing nothing but time as they recover from injuries incurred in the line of duty. Suddenly, their daily routine of TV, lonely hearts ads and banter is shattered by the arrival of a young officer.
The camaraderie of this unlikely band of brothers is soon jeopardised by a dangerous incident and an act of betrayal. With charges of misconduct looming, accusations fly - and the fighting really starts.
Fired by anger at the neglect of our wounded heroes, Our Boys remains as relevant now as was in 1993, when it won a Best New Play award. This first West End production comes from the creative team behind international hit Journey's End.
The cast includes Matthew Lewis, who played Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter film series and was recently nominated for an acting award for his role in BBC One's The Syndicate. Laurence Fox is best known for his leading role as DS Hathaway in ITV drama Lewis. He was last seen in the West End in Treats (Garrick).Arthur Darvill plays Rory Williams in Doctor Who, with other TV credits including He Kills Coppers and The Verdict. His last London stage appearance was in Doctor Faustus (Globe).
