It's 1959 and Philippe, Gustave and Henri, three veterans from the First World War, dream of making their escape from the soldiers' home, if not to Indochina then at least as far as the poplar trees on the hill ...

This translation of Gérald Sibleyras' play - a smash hit in Paris under the title Les Vents des Peupliers, premiered at Wyndham's Theatre, London to critical acclaim, starring Richard Griffiths, John Hurt and Ken Stott

"Gérald Sibleyras' 90-minute French comedy, given an elegant English gloss by its translator Tom Stoppard and the ironic title Heroes, achieves a seductive fusion of the comic, sad and absurd" ~ Nicholas de Jongh, Evening Standard
