About the Show
Heroes is a 2005 translation by Tom Stoppard of the 2003 French play Le Vent Des Peupliers by Gérald Sibleyras.
“A play about camaraderie, hope and small acts of heroism”
Tom Stoppard’s contribution is of course his magnificent wit and choice of scintillating language.” – Curtain Up Review
“Hilarious and moving…achingly funny and piercingly sad.” – The Daily Telegraph
Gustave, Philippe, and Henri – war heroes, all – are plotting an escape. They’ve had enough of the tortures of their confinement: dictatorial captors, untrustworthy fellow prisoners, and far too many birthday parties. Indeed, life in a retired soldiers’ home is almost unbearable! So, while keeping each other company on the back patio, they hatch a plan to escape to Indochina, or at least to a picnic under the poplars on a nearby hill.
Winner of London’s prestigious Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, Tom Stoppard’s adaptation of this French play is playful, bawdy, and heart-breakingly funny.
