by April De Angelis

In years to come we’ll look back and it’ll be like it happened to someone else… someone we didn’t even know and it’ll be hard to feel sorry for….

Horatio Nelson is dead but the women in his life live on.

April De Angelis’ play explores the way in which Britain constructs an idea of itself through a war hero but questions how society really treats those involved in war?

Paines Plough is partnering with Glasgow’s legendary A Play, A Pie and A Pint to bring you five new plays by five of of the UK’s leading writers – April De Angelis, David Harrower, Marie Jones, Linda McLean and Gary Owen – on tour in England, Scotland and Ireland, with a pie and a pint thrown in.
