Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Anyone been to see this play? Read a couple of reviews on it this week and it had a massive thumbs up on all counts. I know that critics in the press are quite arty farty so was wondering if anyone with a squaddie perspective had seen it.

    I can't get tickets for love nor money! Like yourself, all the reviews I've read have been 'two-thumbs up'. Not exactly a squaddie perspective, but written by someone who was embedded with British troops:

    In Bed With The Boys From Fife
  3. I have been trying to get rid of a ticket on a different thread (Lonely Hearts :oops: ) and so far no takers, it is for Sat 5 Jul 14h00 performance at the Barbican.

    I'll give away the ticket but will gratefully accept a donation to Combat Stress (click on link in my sig block).

    Thanks for the offer mate, but alas I'm tied up with the Aldershot Army Show that day.
  5. Yes , this is an excellent play. I hope you are not offended by swear words, because every second one is. Well worth seeing.
  6. See you there then, I'll be in the SSAFA tent!
  7. I had the honour of seeing it in Glasgow in April - an excellent and very moving play - which I believe has the full approval of the Black Watch (or 3 Scots as so many seem to want to break the old Scottish regiment names down to now!). Highly recommend it - it was meant to be a one-off National Theatre of Scotland play and has now toured the world twice and is about to go to America again - how they understand the accents I do not know :?
