A War of Two Halves

£9.99 £5.00

1914. Edinburgh’s Heart of Midlothian Football Club have won nineteen of twenty-one matches and stand on the brink of becoming Scottish League Champions.

In a remarkable show of comradeship and courage, thirteen players volunteer to serve together in McCrae’s Battalion destined to fight in France.

This is their story: an evocative, dramatic journey led by the players/soldiers in a unique site-specific performance, from the football fields of Gorgie, to the battlefields of the Somme.

‘This remarkable story will bring a lump to the throat of anyone…even if you have no interest in football.’ The Edinburgh Reporter

‘Devastating emotion…The sincerity, emotional directness, and beautiful staging of A War of Two Halves deserves to transcend sporting allegiances.’

‘A War of Two Halves is a stunning piece of writing, with a sentimental heart of reverence.’

‘Evocative and perfectly-pitched…All will enjoy this production for its very human themes of duty, sacrifice and long-lasting trauma.’ The Scotsman
