SHORT + SWEET THEATRE
Show 1 | 1 – 3 September
When a pair of elite soldiers have a grenade thrown into their trench, only one of them makes the ultimate sacrifice by jumping on the grenade. The dud grenade does not explode, but their friendship does – the consequent conversation reveals tensions that had previously been under the surface.
