Swindon’s World War One commemorations will soon take on a distinctly French theme when The Brunel Centre stages ‘Heroes’, a play set in a French military retirement home.
The comedy, featuring professional actors, tells the story of three First World War veterans who plot their escape from the boredom of the routines of living in a care home. Heroes is Tom Stoppard’s translation and adaptation of the 2003 French play Le Vent Des Peupliers by Gérald Sibleyras.
Jane Stewart, Marketing Manager at The Brunel said: “We felt it was important for The Brunel Centre to help Swindon commemorate World War One and so, as one of several events to mark this occasion, we decided to commission this well-known play and to bring it to the people of Swindon.
"It will be a great evening out, and something a little bit different too, it’s not every day that you get to watch professional theatre in your local shopping centre. We are expecting it to be a really popular event so would encourage people to get their tickets early”.
The performance will take place on Thursday 11 September 2014 downstairs in The Brunel Arcade, outside Boswells Café/House of Fraser.
The evening starts at 6.30pm with supper and a glass of wine at Boswells. The performance commences at 7.15pm and is expected to last until 9.15pm.
Tickets for seats cost £12 and are available from The Centre Management Suite, first floor of Brunel Plaza, or from Boswells café, ground floor Brunel Arcade.
