Q productions are offering FREE theatre tickets to serving and ex-serving military personnel for Jonathan Lewis's critically-acclaimed hilarious and heart-breaking military play Our Boys at Edinburgh Festival Fringe from 3 - 6 August at 20:30, at PQA Venues @Riddle's Court (venue 277), just off the Royal Mile.

Jonathan Lewis is directing this updated version of his critically acclaimed play in a brand-new production premiering at the Festival Fringe, running from 3 - 27 August. Updated from the original setting of 1984 to 2010, in the aftermath of what is known as 'Herrick IX', the Op name given to the combat operations in Afghanistan in 2008/9, the story follows six young soldiers placed together in a hospital ward as some of them recover from their injuries sustained during combat. Through laughter, anger, joy and despair, this all-new production takes the audience inside the often-closed world of recovery of our servicemen highlighting the unspoken struggles our service men and women can face, showing the strong, unbreakable bonds formed. It is a play that is as heartbreaking as it is hilarious.
The cast has been working with serving and ex-serving military personnel to ensure as accurate portrayal of the hospital ward and military protocol as possible, and to understand the issues their characters might face.

Our Boys will be directed by Jonathan Lewis. The Sound Designer and Composer is Adam Gerber and Lighting Designer is Dickson Cossar. It is produced by Q Productions.
