Soldier On tickets are now available. This moving show returns to London at The Other Palace following its sold out national tour. 

Soldier On is inspired by the stories writer/director Jonathan Lewis (writer of multi award-winning Our Boys) workshopped with British servicemen and women and their families over a five year period. The play returns to London following a sold out national tour to commemorate the end of the First World War. 

The result is “as funny as it is heart-breaking” and lifts the lid on the vastness and complexity of Britain’s often overlooked and incredibly broad military community, the wives, partners, mothers, children and, of course, the servicemen and women themselves, and how they cope with the emotional, mental and physical effects and stresses of modern military service and its after effects.

In a bold initiative, and putting the play’s premise into action, the cast includes ex-service personnel as well as professional actors from Producer Amanda Faber’s Award Winning Theatre Company, The Soldiers’ Arts Academy.

The mixed cast brings a veracity and a genuine emotion seldom achieved in theatre. Audiences say they cannot tell who is an actor, or who is the veteran, and that question has them gripped from start to finish.

The play employs music, dance and mixed media. It is by turns viscerally realistic, shockingly funny, and intensely emotional.

Do not miss your chance to see this touching work. Tickets for Soldier On are now available for this limited 4 week run!

Chris Moore19th November

A very thought provoking and powerful production which shows the effect on the whole family. Something many do not realise. Excellent show.

Corynne Bredin17th November

'Soldier on' was very thought provoking plus familiar territory being an 'army brat' myself! Hopefully it will expose to the public at large the enormous strain that can be felt at home when soldiers are both away and at home. The wives and mothers should also get medals for the unending support they give to the whole family in stressful times and sometimes difficult and poor accommodation.

John Walls12th November

First class show. Powerful and moving capturing the challenges of PTSD.
