As the Gulf War rages, the past drags a former soldier back to the scorched sands of Egypt in World War II.

Jack reigns from the armchair of his resthome, a North East legend. Former river warden, boxer, horse whisperer, boat builder,charmer, prolific father and husband to a very unhappy wife.Memories are, by his own hand, tattooed on his body but dementia is eroding his mind.

Previous Fringe First and Total Theatre Award winners.

Open Sky present this one man tour de force,inspired by the writer’s grandfather.

“A powerful play that capturesthe horror of war and the disorientation of dementia.” Britishtheatre
