New play performed in Enfield is inspired by the families of military personnel

A new play telling the story of armed forces personnel and their families, is coming to Enfield.

The Man Who Left is Not the Man Who Came Home will be performed at the Dugdale Centre on Saturday, February 29.

Chloé has bright hopes for her future with Ashley. But those hopes are overshadowed by imminent challenges – because Ashley is in the armed forces and is due to be deployed on operations abroad. Behind closed doors there’s tenderness and humour, but as the day of Ashley’s departure comes ever closer, their confrontations multiply.

Kevin Dyer’s new play is the product of over 100 interviews with soldiers and their wives – each a where secrets and regrets have been shared.

This 70-minute show, presented by a cast of three including a military wife, will be followed by a facilitated collective conversation about the country we live in.

Dugdale Centre, 39 London Road, Enfield, Saturday, February 29, 7.30pm. Details: 020 8807 6680 dugdalecentre.co.uk
