Regeneration at the Everyman Theatre


Productions at The Everyman Theatre, Cheltenham

Pat Barker’s World War One novel adapted for the stage by Nicholas Wright

Marking the centenary of the First World War, Pat Barker’s Booker-nominated novel, Regeneration, has been adapted for the stage by Olivier Award-winning playwright Nicholas Wright (His Dark Materials, Vincent in Brixton). It runs at the Everyman 21-25 October.
Regeneration is a compellingly compassionate look at war and the devastating after effect it had on a generation of young men. The play examines the insanity of war with shocking clarity; a powerful anthem for the youth of the First World War and the lives of young soldiers today.

Craiglockhart War Hospital, Scotland 1917. Poet and soldier Siegfried Sassoon has been institutionalised in an attempt to undermine his public disapproval of the war. His Army Psychiatrist, Dr William Rivers, has been tasked with returning shell-shocked officers to the trenches, yet under Sassoon’s influence, has become tormented by the morality of what is being done in the name of medicine.
Among the outstanding cast are Stephen Boxer as Captain Rivers (The Honourable Woman, Foyle’s War, Death in Paradise and Luther); Christopher Brandon as Robert Graves and Tim Delap as Siegfried Sassoon (Black Mirror – Be Right Back, Doctors and Foyle’s War).
