Earlier this evening we met the cast of injured and sick former service men and women who will be on stage at Pleasance Beyond from tomorrow with a premiere of Unspoken, a play based on the stories of 100 veterans.
These are people who have experienced life in the extreme, some of it written on their faces, and others with injury only too apparent for anyone to see. But they are a very cheery bunch and were extremely happy that the Lord Provost, Frank Ross had asked them round to the City Chambers.
The play, written by Gary Kitching and presented by the Bravo 22 Company military arts based recovery programme, is a moving and funny exploration of life in the aftermath of trauma and injury.
Unspoken is set in a club where a disparate regiment of soldiers, sailors and airmen have gathered to chat, drink and watch live entertainment.
