PINK MIST by Owen Sheers. A Bristol Old Vic production.

Devonshire Park Theatre, Compton Street, Eastbourne
– Pink Mist is a verse drama inspired by 30 interviews with returned servicemen and first staged at Bristol Old Vic in 2015
– It gives lyrical voice to the (fictionalised) experiences of three Bristol-raised soldiers caught up in the Afghan conflict, and the women – girlfriends, mothers – who have to pick up the pieces.
– ‘Eye-opening and brilliantly vivid’ (The Times)
– ‘beautifully performed’ . . . (Guardian)
– ‘Pink Mist may be the most important play of the year. It is certainly one of the best.’ What’s On Stage
