A British northern coastal town. Three young men are coming home from war. Their stories, set at different times over the last 100 years, are beautifully interwoven in this compelling new play featuring Frantic Assembly‘s celebrated physicality.
The Unreturning explores the profound effect that war has on young lives, and asks – what does coming home really mean? What is home? And when experience has shattered you into a million pieces, will home help to put you together again, or treat you as an ugly truth it does not want to confront?
All four members of the cast for The Unreturning were part of Frantic’s Ignition programme, now in its tenth year, before going on to train professionally and pursue acting careers.
