The comedy, HEROES, takes place in 1959 in a home for retired World War I veterans. Our three “HEROES” find themselves fed up with just reliving old war stories and begin looking for adventure beyond the cemetery they overlook from their patio each day. A plan to escape their humdrum existence develops as they imagine the freedom beyond- Indochina or just the hill behind the poplars? Touted by the London Daily Telegraph as “Hilarious and moving….achingly funny and piercingly sad…” HEROES was the recipient of the Lawrence Olivier Best New Comedy Award.
HEROES features a stellar cast of three with Philippe being played by Tom Puckett, Gustave by David Ralphe, and Richard Winterstein as Henri. Eric Stein directs the project with Barbara Pedziwiatr costuming. Seth Kamenow will be the technical director on the production.
