A military career is more than just a job, it’s a way of life. Not just for those who go away and serve, but also for the ones they leave behind.
Looking beyond the drama of the frontline, Boots at the Door is a funny and poignant play that explores what it means to be a hero – both in the field and at home.
Forging a brand new theatre company, members of Plymouth’s Armed Forces Community developed this show from scratch, based on their own experiences and stories. Boots at the Door offers a rare opportunity to see them in a new light.
Based on a play by Jonathan Lewis, Boots at the Door was created by the Theatre Royal Plymouth in partnership with Bravo 22 Company – The Royal British Legion’s Recovery through Theatre programme.
Boots at the Door was performed in The Lyric in December 2015.
