The Unreturning at Theatre Royal Startford East


Come see The Unreturning at Theatre Royal Stratford East from 16 Jan - 2 Feb 2019, 7.30pm (with matinees at 2.30pm).

I want to return to my home.

A British Northern coastal town. Three young men are coming home from war. Their stories, set at different times over the last 100 years, are beautifully interwoven in this compelling new play by Anna Jordan (Yen - Royal Court Theatre, Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting 2013).

Directed by Neil Bettles (Associate Director of Frantic Assembly) and featuring Frantic’s celebrated physicality, The Unreturning explores the profound effect that war has on young lives, and asks - what does coming home really mean?

Frantic Assembly and Theatre Royal Plymouth’s production of The Unreturning comes to London as part of its UK tour. Written by Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting winner Anna Jordan and directed by Frantic Assembly Associate Director Neil Bettles, the production celebrates the 10th anniversary of Frantic Assembly’s Ignition training programme, of which Theatre Royal Stratford East has previously been a partner.
