DO We Do the Right Thing?, the new production from contemporary theatre company BeFrank, will be performed for the first time in a seven-date mini-tour kicking off in London at the New Diorama Theatre on November 3.
A documentary about Royal Wootton Bassett’s unusual remembrance rituals stirred something in the play’s creator, Neil Walker.
He and collaborator Rus Kallan, began to collect the testimonies from both residents of the Wiltshire town and military personnel.
Evoking powerful emotions
The play is a compelling real-life story exploring the military traditions, rites of passage and conflicts that have shaped so much of British history, interspersed with stories of how this enormous establishment has impacted the protagonist’s life directly.
Following the initial performances in London, Salisbury and Exeter, the play will return for a number of shows in 2015, including historic performances for British troops stationed in Germany ahead of rebasing.
