Arthur Darvill to star in new West End play


Arthur Darvill will join Laurence Fox and Cian Barry in a new production of "Our Boys" at the Duchess Theatre later this year. Previews start from Wednesday 26 September 2012. Opening night is Wednesday 3 October 2012 and the play runs through to Saturday 15 October 2012. Tickets are £20 and £45 or £10 and £35 for the previews. Tickets can be booked via the "Our Boys" website.

The press release reads:

Based on the author’s own army experience, OUR BOYS is both searingly honest and explosively funny.

Five young soldiers are killing nothing but time as they recover from injuries incurred in the line of duty. Suddenly, their daily routine of TV, lonely hearts ads and banter is shattered by the arrival of a young officer. The camaraderie of this unlikely band of brothers is soon jeopardised by a dangerous incident and an act of betrayal.

With charges of misconduct looming, accusations fly – and the fighting really starts. Fired by anger at the neglect of our wounded heroes, OUR BOYS remains as relevant now as was in 1993, when it won a Best New Play award. This first West End production comes from the creative team behind international hit Journey’s End.

OUR BOYS plays the West End’s intimate Duchess Theatre for a strictly limited 12-week season this Autumn, with performance starting 26 September. Tickets, from just £10, and are on sale now.

The cast of six includes Laurence Fox, Arthur Darvill and Cian Barry.
