A man that can’t remember. A nation that can’t forget.

France, 1918. A soldier is found wandering a station platform. With no knowledge of his identity, or the country he has been defending, he is saved from death but exiled from life. What follows is a war story, a ghost story, an absurd comedy and a chilling tragedy in which the ensemble rise from a no-man's land of
mud to imagine and remember the life of the living unknown soldier.

This groundbreaking production is pioneering new ways of theatre making, using a hydrogen fuel cell to power the production and working closely with Arcola Energy to try and create ecologically sustainable production processes.
