By Howard Brenton

An epic, hilarious and moving play that takes a sideways look at the First World War.

1915. Jack Twigg, twenty-one years old, enlists in the London Regiment and goes on a journey he never imagined - nor did the rest of the world. On his way, he meets the pioneering medic Harold Gillies, who saves his life and his sanity. And who is the mysterious Doctor Scroggy who appears at night in Gillies' hospital dispensing champagne to the patients?

Howard Brenton's play Doctor Scroggy's War premiered at Shakespeare's Globe, London, in September 2014.
