3rd - 7th May 2016

Event info

Start Time: 7.30pm

It’s 1959 and Philippe, Gustave and Henri, three veterans from the First World War, dream of making their escape from the old soldiers’ home – well, at least as far as the poplar trees on the hill. The gentle humour of this play arises from the foibles of these men as they wait for inevitable death, which they avoided in the trenches of their youth.

Sibleyras’s Le Vent des Peupliers premiered at Wyndham’s Theatre, London, in 2005 as Heroes. This English-language version by acclaimed playwright Tom Stoppard won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy. The People’s Theatre is proud to give the play its premiere on Tyneside.
