The Private misses the farm. The Captain dreams of painting. The Corporal relishes the fight. And a hundred years later, The Woman seeks to understand.

A startling play about action, humanity, and the legacy of war. This astonishing production immersed audiences in the reality of conflict in vivid, thrilling detail. It gave you a fresh way of thinking about war - from the soldier’s perspective then, and the women’s perspective now. You’ll never walk past a war memorial in the same way again.

Rory Mullarkey is a winner of the Harold Pinter and George Devine Awards, and has been commissioned by the Royal Court and National Theatre.

Each Slow Dusk was live-streamed around the globe on Friday 21 November 2014 from The Palace Community Centre in Ibstock, Leicestershire, via our friends at the Royal Court Theatre. This was the first ever broadcast of a performance taking place in a village hall to the world.

Each Slow Dusk was developed with the support of the National Theatre Studio.
