Heroes are coming!

'Heroes' runs April 17th - 27th. Click HERE for Tickets 

 

'Heroes' is a hilarious award winning play by Tom Stoppard about three WWI veterans who live in a veterans' retirement home and are planning their next "Great Escape". 

Gustave, Philippe, and Henri - war heroes, all - are plotting an escape. They've had enough of the tortures of their confinement: dictatorial captors, untrustworthy fellow prisoners, and far too many birthday parties. Indeed, life in a retired soldiers' home is almost unbearable! So, while keeping each other company on the back patio, they hatch a plan to escape to Indochina, or at least to a picnic under the poplars on a nearby hill.
Winner of London's prestigious Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, this piece is playful, bawdy, and heartbreakingly funny.
