France, 1918. A soldier is found wandering a station platform. With no knowledge of his identity, or the country he has been defending, he is saved from death but exiled from life.
What follows is a war story, a ghost story, an absurd comedy and a chilling tragedy in which the ensemble rise from a no-man’s land of mud to imagine and remember the life of the living unknown soldier.
The Living Unknown Soldier is listed on both Arcola Theatre's and simple8 theatre company's pages.
