From the controversial German playwright Rolf Hochhuth (author of The Repesentative), Soldiers is a contemporary example of documentary theatre at its best and most dramatic. Soldiers delves into the shady and hotly contested history of Winston Churchill’s role in the Second World War, and of the Allied bombing of German cities. This is the story of the Englishmen who, in setting Germany alight, helped to shape the nature of aerial warfare that continues to govern the international stage today. Originally banned by the Lord Chamberlain and rejected by the National Theatre Board, this provocative play, which divided both historians and critics, receives its first revival since its 1968 production which received numerous security threats.
