Photo Flash: Hampton Theatre Company's HEROES, Opening 1/9

Three high-spirited World War I veterans confined to an old soldiers home seek to rise above their predicament and their limitations in the comedic and often touching "Heroes," the second play in the Hampton Theatre Company's 2013-2014 season in Quogue. Check out a first look below!

Translated from the French and adapted by Tom Stoppardfrom "The Wind in the Poplars" ("Le Vent de Peupliers") by Gérald Sibleyras, "Heroes" opens on January 9 at the Quogue Community Hall and runs through January 26.

Winner of the 2006 Olivier Award for best new comedy during its run in London, the play earned four Molière nominations when the original opened in Paris in 2003.

Set in France in 1959, the play explores the three comrades' different paths to summoning their courage as they engage in comical and often absurd banter and fantasize about regaining their freedom, despite their age and other obvious limitations.

"Heroes" opens on January 9 and runs through January 26 at the Quogue Community Hall on Jessup Avenue. Showtimes are Thursdays and Fridays at 7, Saturdays at 8, and Sundays at 2:30. The Hampton Theatre Company will once again be offering special dinner and theater packages in collaboration with the Southampton, Westhampton Beach, Hampton Bays and Quogue libraries. Complete information about the dinner and theater packages is available on the company website, www.hamptontheatre.org.
