Island Theatre presents a staged play reading of the poignant comedy Heroes by Gérald Sibleyras, adapted by Sam Sheppard, at the Bainbridge Public Library. Show times are 7:30 p.m. Saturday, February 15 and Sunday, February 16. Performances are free, with donations welcome.
In this enchanting comedy, war heroes Gustave, Philippe, and Henri are plotting an escape. They’ve had enough of the tortures of their confinement. Life in a retired soldiers’ home is almost unbearable! So while keeping each other company on the back patio, they hatch a plan to escape to Indochina, or at least to a picnic under the poplars on a nearby hill.
Winner of London’s prestigious Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, Tom Stoppard’s adaptation of this French play is playful, bawdy, and heartbreakingly funny.
Heroes is directed by Paul Bryan and features Brian Danzig, George Shannon and Nelson Spickard.
The play is recommended for high school age and up.
FREE, donations appreciated
