The Soldier

By Rachel Wagstaff A Mesh Theatre Production Age Guidance 11+
10 - 12 October 2019 In The Salberg at Salisbury Playhouse
The Soldier


Thursday 10 – Saturday 12 October at 7.45pm


Inspired by the life of one of England’s best-loved war poets Rupert Brooke and his contemporaries at the outbreak of WW1, The Soldier moves between London, Blandford Camp, Belgium and the Aegean where Brooke died on his way to fight in the Gallipoli campaign.

Captivating and surprisingly modern in its treatment of warfare and relationships, it was Rachel’s first play, launching a stellar career which includes stage adaptations of Birdsong, Flowers for Mrs Harris and The Mirror Crack’d.

"Ever enthralling, good-humoured, finally heart-rending..."
- The Daily Telegraph

"Life and death in the trenches ... brilliantly realised"
- Western Front Association
