The Trench

Oliver Lansley


Please note this book can take up to 10 days to be dispatched.

A new play inspired by the true story of a miner who became entombed in a tunnel during World War One. As the horror threatens to engulf him, he discovers another world beneath the mud and death. Setting off on an epic journey of salvation, the boundaries between reality and fantasy blur as he questions what’s real, what’s not and whether it even matters? The Trench blends Les Enfants Terribles’ acclaimed brand of physical storytelling, verse, puppetry and live music from Alexander Wolfe.
