About the event

1918. The Western Front. Private Hamp, a young working-class soldier from Lancashire, has been in the frontline of a bloody battlefield for three years. One day he decides to walk away… For King and Country follows the shell-shocked soldier’s trial for desertion, and his defending officer’s fight to keep him from the firing squad. Originally performed at the Edinburgh Festival in 1964 and adapted into a BAFTA-nominated film, John Wilson’s military courtroom drama will be seen in London for the first time in half a century this summer to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War.
