There is a War by Tom Badsen

There is a War

Directed by Alyx Tole   
by Tom Basden

The blues and the greys are at war. A ridiculed analysis of warfare.

About the play

In a battle-scorched landscape where soldiers, priests and scavengers are roaming, a young medical officer finds herself lost and useless while is desperately trying to reach the front-line hospital. Anne's journey shows how around her no one seems to have the exact idea of the reason to be fighting for.
