<p>Heroes</p> <p>by Gerald Sibleyras</p> <p>translated by Tom Stoppard</p> <p>directed by John Vreeke</p> <p>featuring Ralph Cosham, John Dow and Michael Tolaydo</p> <p>Three soldiers in a Parisian veterans’ home pass the time with tales that are at once achingly funny and piercingly sad. With his rapier wit and dazzling use of language Tom Stoppard offers a brilliant new translation that mixes comic curmudgeonry, camaraderie and nostalgia. A smash hit when it premiered in Paris, Heroes received four Moliere nominations. The London production won the 2006 Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy.</p>
