’Mametz Wood’ by Lyon Devereux

Directed by Helena Devereux

Produced by InterAct (Wales)

It is 1916 and the Battle of the Somme is raging. Tasked with taking Mametz Wood, the Welsh soldiers have dwindling supplies, heavy casualties and plummeting morale. When poor orders lead to disastrous results, history would wrongly accuse them of cowardice. In the deathly silence, who will speak for those who can no longer speak for themselves?  

InterAct Wales premiered this production at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2014 gaining 4*reviews. The Stage said “’Fully rounded characters, engrossing realities”. Three Weeks said “’Visceral, bold and devoted to demonstrating realism ...Touching and engaging’, now in the centenary year of the Battle itself, this production comes to London and Wales.
