New Play: Soldiers' Wives

Just had this in by email which may be of interest to those of you who are theatre goers....

"I wouldn't put it like that, but yes I am married to someone whose job description includes being prepared to die"

Five wives living on an army base somewhere in England.
Five lives caught up in the humdrum tension of waiting for their men to return whole and unharmed.
War does terrible things to people, leaves scars both visible and invisible.
A front-line incident ricochets through their lives and each woman is forced to confront hidden and painful truths.

Sarah Daniels' plays have been performed at theatres including the Royal Court and the National Theatre. Soldiers Wives was originally broadcast on Woman's Hour on BBC Radio 4.
