About this show

Heroes, adapted by the Award-winning playwright Tom Stoppard, from Gerard Sibleyras' French original, is the hilarious and poignant story of three old soldiers in a French military hospital in 1959. The trio survived World War I. Forty years later, as residents in a veterans' home and armed only with what is left of their wits and a 200-pound stone dog, they battle old age, nagging war injuries, and a masochistic nun. Heroes presents us with a heartwarming tale of camaraderie and a moving portrait of the frustrations inherent in growing older. "Line by beautifully delivered line the play proves wonderfully entertaining." - London Telegram "...magnificent wit...scintillating language...amazing...acting is superlative." - - KCLA Radio
