The Unknown Soldier is Grist to the Mill’s Edinburgh Fringe 2016 sell out show. A tribute to the end of the Centenary in 2018:

Jack stayed on when the guns fells silent, to search the battlefields for the boys that could not go home - for the dead and the missing, for both enemy and friend. And amongst the rusty wire and unexploded bombs Jack is looking for something - looking for someone. He has a promise to keep and debt to repay, and now there is this strange request from the generals.

A story of comradeship, betrayal and of promises both broken and kept following the carnage of World War One. A new theatre piece by the award nominated writer of Casualties.

In partnership with:

 

Grist To The Mill is a new theatre company launched in April of 2012, producing new writing and forgotten classics for a new generation.
