“Always here the same people willing to sacrifice somebody else’s life. But it’s time two people had a say in things: us little guys and the dead.”

When the call came, idealistic Joe Bonham eagerly volunteered for the trenches of World War One. Now he has paid a price he never expected, and far away from his American homeland he struggles to come to terms with what his world has become. As his grip on reality becomes ever more tenuous he reflects on the true nature of war and the choices he made.

Metal Rabbit brings the UK premiere of Oscar-winner Dalton Trumbo’s classic anti-war novel to Southwark Playhouse in the form of Bradley Rand Smith’s Obie-winning adaptation. Starring Jack Holden (War Horse) and directed by Fringe First winner David Mercatali (Dark Vanilla Jungle), this is the perfect play to mark the centenary of World War One.

A brutal, intense one man show with an incredibly powerful message about the cruelty of war and the way the military treats those who suffer in its service.

Suitable for

  • Any age

Admission

£18 | £16 concessions | Preview performances £10
