Interweaving new material with Ian Gurney’s own music, poems and letters, Iain Burnside has created a unique piece of music theatre, A Soldier And A Maker.

Today, three-quarters of a century after his death,  Ivor Gurney is finally celebrated as a poet and a composer. This Gloucester-born tailor’s son thought of himself as both, preferring the term ‘maker’. He was many things beside: soldier, cricketer, crack shot, cake eater, nightwalker, wit,  faithful if exasperating friend and, for the last 17 years of his life, asylum inmate.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
