The Gate Theatre, the National Theatre, Out of Joint, Paines Plough and the Royal Court join forces to present Mark Ravenhill’s Shoot/ Get Treasure/ Repeat, and epic cycle of plays exploring the personal and political effect of war on modern life.
The plays began life at last year’s Edinburgh Festival as Ravenhill For Breakfast and form a collage of very different scenes, each taking its title from another classic work. Throughout April, the plays will be presented in various venues across
