#Regeneration

“I believe that this war, upon which I entered as a war of defence and liberation, has now become a war of aggression and conquest.”Siegfried Sassoon
Marking the centenary of the First World War, this new dramatisation of Pat Barker’s unforgettable Booker-nominated novel is adapted by Olivier award-winning playwright Nicholas Wright (His Dark Materials, Vincent in Brixton).

Craiglockhart War Hospital, Scotland 1917. Poet and soldier Siegfried Sassoon has been institutionalised in an attempt to undermine his public disapproval of the war. His Army Psychiatrist, Dr William Rivers, has been tasked with returning shell-shocked officers to the trenches, yet under Sassoon’s influence, has become tormented by the morality of what is being done in the name of medicine.

Reminding us that some of the most touching of friendships are borne from the most brutal of conflicts, Regeneration is a compassionate look at war and its devastating effects: a powerful anthem for the youth of WW1.

“A brilliant novel. Intense and subtle”
