Pink Mist by Owen Sheers

Tue 15th November to Sat 19th November 2016

Superbly cast and directed by Christine Richardson, the production was poignant, moving and thought-provoking in equal measure.

“Owen Sheers’ poetic script told the story of three young men deployed to Afghanistan and how, on their return, they and their women coped with the aftermath, both physical and psychological.

Superbly cast and directed by Christine Richardson, the production was poignant, moving and thought-provoking in equal measure.

Joe Goatley played Arthur, the first of the trio of Army volunteers.

He was quickly joined by Taff (Matt Reeve) and Hads (Alistair Beeson). Totally secure in their roles, they each grasped and projected the meatiness, yet delicacy of the words.

Their women Gwen (Kyle Eastwood), Lisa (Sarah Parker) and Sarah (Sheena Easton) were played strongly and credibly, adding a slight softness to a hard-hitting script.

Wednesday’s audience seemed spellbound, hanging on every word delivered by this talented young cast.”
