Tarragon Theatre – Mainspace


November 7th, 2006 – December 17th, 2006


The Great War is over and the world can finally forget. Except some can’t forget. Some like poet, Robert Graves, have a piece of shrapnel in their lungs. And some, like T.E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia), can’t bear to see his beloved Arabia falling into the morass of civil war while Britain breaks its promises to its former Arab allies. What can a pair of rebels do, except take to the rooftops of Oxford? A timely exploration of the consequence of war from the author of Mary’s Wedding. (
