Raks's Says: This is right up my street. An attractive all-male cast. Themes of the Army and War. I have got my ticket in - I suggest you do the same!

Our Boys, Duchess Theatre
Wednesday 26 September to Saturday 15 December

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 it was in 1993, when it won a Best New Play award.

Cast: Cian Barry, Jolyon Coy, Arthur Darvill, Laurence Fox, Matthew Lewis and Lewis Reeves.
