At the PARK Theatre

Lost boy. Scary Man. Paranoid. It’s time to declare 

war on war.

This play will make your head explode.

With Taz Skylar (The Deal, Electric Entertainment), Klariza Clayton (Dani’s House, CBBC), Craig Fairbrass (EastEnders, BBC), Hassan Najib (Tortoise, NYT) and the professional stage debuts of Sophie Couch and Joseph Connolly.

What happens to youth when it’s sent to war?

Upon return from his first tour of Afghanistan, 19 year old Miles isn’t quite himself. Noises don’t sound the same. People don’t look the same. Pizza doesn’t taste the same.

The harder he tries to act normal, the harder it gets to be normal. And all his loved ones’ attempts to help him just keep making things worse.

The play oscillates between multiple time lines. We get to see glimpses of the child that was Miles Weppler before he signed up for the army. The man he’s become post war. We get an intimate view into what motivates a young man towards the military, what motivates him to stay in the military, and why he wants to stay there at any cost.

Through the eyes of his therapist he’s just a lost boy. Through the eyes of his girlfriend he’s a stubborn and sometimes scary man. Through the eyes of his best friend, he’s paranoid. And through the not-so-best friend’s eyes, Weppler’s just a dick.

Warheads is a punchy urban drama based on a true story.

Fight War not Wars – Coming soon to Park200

The Time Of Our Lies
By Bianca Bagatourian
Directed by 
Ché Walker

30 Jul – 10 Aug

Howard Zinn was an American historian, professor and social activist. His book, A People’s History of the United States, has sold two million copies throughout the U.S.

The Time Of Our Lies explores Zinn’s personal history, including being a soldier who dropped bombs on Royan, France, in WWll. This fateful moment troubled him for the rest of his days and shaped the man who would become a moral compass for the United States.

This play features first-person accounts of war from other soldiers, all juxtaposed against a backdrop of Butoh inspired movement.

The Edinburgh Fringe Festival run was nominated for the Amnesty International “Freedom of Expression” Award (2014). The London production is sponsored by Eddie Vedder, Susan Sarandon, Diane Lane andMyla Kabat-Zinn.
