A Bristol Old Vic Production
By Owen Sheers
Bristol Old Vic's 250th Anniversary Season
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.
Pink Mist returns as part of Bristol Old Vic's 250th Anniversary programme which will include productions from each of the four centuries of the Theatre's life.
A remarkable experience...This ground-breaking piece of theatre is not one to be missed."
A marvellous young cast...Here is a play that deserves a further life"
Fearlessly lyrical in its imagery."
