Observe the Sons of Ulster Marching Towards the Somme
How strong is the bond between men united by the call to arms? Eight young men of Ulster, thrown together for army training during the Great War, must move beyond the troubles between Protestant and Catholic as they prepare for the Battle of the Somme. Directed by Matt Torney, Frank McGuinness' lyrical play captures the fierce friendship and loyalty among men who must face the wickedness and wastefulness of war.
