Regeneration (stage version)

By Pat Barker Adapted by Nicholas Wright

Paperback £10.99£8.79

A powerful anthem for the youth of World War One that offers a compassionate look at war and its devastating effects. Adapted from Pat Barker's Booker Prize-nominated novel.

Craiglockhart War Hospital, Scotland 1917. Poet and soldier Siegfried Sassoon has been institutionalised in an attempt to undermine his public disapproval of the war. His Army Psychiatrist, Dr William Rivers, has been tasked with returning shell-shocked officers to the trenches, yet under Sassoon's influence, has become tormented by the morality of what is being done in the name of medicine.

Produced to mark the centenary of the outbreak of WWI, Nicholas Wright's stage adaptation of Regeneration opened at the Royal & Derngate, Northampton, in August 2014, before embarking on a national tour co-produced by Touring Consortium.
