WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

A wartime love story and soundscape. American idealists. The war to end all wars. An unlikely love affair. The audience follows the action around the space in this environmental staging of entangled romance set against the chaos of World War I. Pig Iron's signature work, with James Sugg's award-winning, low-tech sound design, Gentlemen Volunteers has been performed in castles, stables, nightclubs and boxing rings around the world to universal acclaim. "An aesthetic triumph…full of humanity. It's a thing of beauty and a joy." - The Scotsman (Edinburgh) "An absolute gem... Their moving story is enacted with a beautiful physicality in which objects and tidal feelings are mimed... A work of great heart, skill, and imagination." - Time Out London "A masterpiece." - Philadelphia Weekly
