Review from david c. meyer

Fine acting and staging. Play excellent. A few times a little slow. Could have been done to advantage without intermission and with a LITTLE judicial cutting.

The acting was great and the play was okay. It did not win my butt review.

Description

Heroes

by Gerald Sibleyras

Translated by Tom Stoppard**

**Directed by James Bohnen

Featuring Artistic Associate** David Darlow and guest artists Mike Nussbaum and **Roderick Peeples  

Tom Stoppard’s translation of Gérald Sibleyras’ play won the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy.  It’s 1959 and Philippe, Gustave and Henri, three veterans from WWI keep each other company on the back terrace of a retired soldiers’ home. Through a series of witty scenes, the men goad one another into new adventures.  The men’s cantankerous camaraderie becomes strained as they plot an expedition to Indochina, or at least as far as the poplar trees on the distant hill. Heroes is a funny and bittersweet play about memory and “not going gently into that good night.”
