ON TOUR: Pink Mist

back to shows

A Bristol Old Vic Production

Pink Mist tells the story of three young Bristol men deployed to Afghanistan. Returning to the women in their lives who must now share the physical and psychological aftershocks of their service, Arthur, Hads and Taff find their journey home is their greatest battle.

Owen Sheers' Pink Mist was inspired by 30 interviews with returned servicemen and first staged at Bristol Old Vic in 2015. "Fearlessly lyrical in its imagery" (The Times), this critically acclaimed show directed by John Retallack and George Mann (Theatre Ad Infinitum) matches Sheers' haunting verse with dynamic movement.

Following its sell-out seasons in London and Bristol in 2016, Pink Mist returns this year to set off on a national tour of the UK.

A marvellous young cast...Here is a play that deserves a further life"


Beautifully performed...Heartbreaking."
