Two young soldiers make the most of a drunken night out with their friends before they leave for active service in Iraq. Once there, their personal lives and insecurities directly impact on their tour of duty. Explosive and thought provoking, Roy Williams’ new play, written in response to Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, offers a fresh insight into the consequences of modern warfare within a society that appears to tragically fail its young.
