“Always here the same people willing to sacrifice somebody else’s life. But it’s time two people had a say in things: us little guys and the dead.”

When the call came, idealistic Joe Bonham eagerly volunteered for the trenches of World War One. Now he has paid a price he never expected, and far away from his American homeland he struggles to come to terms with what his world has become. As his grip on reality becomes ever more tenuous he reflects on the true nature of war and the choices he made.

Metal Rabbit brings Oscar-winner Dalton Trumbo’s classic anti-war novel to The HUB in the form of Bradley Rand Smith’s Obie-winning adaptation. Directed by Fringe First winner David Mercatali (Dark Vanilla Jungle), this is the perfect play to mark the centenary of World War One.

A brutal, intense one man show with an incredibly powerful message about the cruelty of war and the way the military treats those who suffer in its service.

‘a stunning tour de force’ The Independent

‘It’s powerful stuff, and you can’t help but be moved… Trumbo’s passionate anti-war message is well worth hearing…’  The Guardian

‘this stirring adaptation of Dalton Trumbo’s 1938 anti-war novel’ Time Out

‘Entirely gripping…’ Whatsonstage.com

‘Highly recommended’ The Arts Desk
