A Northern British coastal town. Three young men are coming home from war.
Their stories, set at different times over a hundred years, are beautifully interwoven in Anna Jordan's The Unreturning, a play that explores the profound effect that war has on young people’s lives, and asks – what does coming home really mean? What is home? And when experience has shattered you into a million pieces, will home help to put you together again, or treat you as an ugly truth it does not want to confront?
The Unreturning was premiered at Theatre Royal Plymouth in September 2018, in a co-production between Frantic Assembly and Theatre Royal Plymouth, before touring the UK.
‘I want to return to my home.’
'An absorbing, thought-provoking piece of new writing... [Jordan] creates dialogue and especially soliloquies of shuddering power'The Reviews Hub
