Synopsis

Gustave, Philippe, and Henri – war heroes all – are plotting an escape. They’ve had enough of the tortures of their confinement: murderous captors, untrustworthy fellow prisoners, and far too many birthday parties… Indeed, life in a retired soldiers home is almost unbearable! So, while driving each other crazy on the back patio, they hatch a plan to escape to Indochina, or a grand picnic, or at least to a grove of poplar trees at the top of a windblown hill nearby. Winner of London’s prestigious Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, Tom Stoppard’s adaptation of this charming French play is playful, bawdy and heartbreakingly funny.
