Faith is a play set in the midst of the Falklands War, where Sandra finds her home, a local farmhouse, is being used as a billet for British soldiers as 2 rival armies fight for supremacy in her back yard and a reluctant Sergeant and over-eager Lance-corporal fight for supremacy in her kitchen.
The conflict is not solely military but also a political one. When orders come from above to kill an American mercenary, everyone begins to question not only the war, but their own personal beliefs.
Starring ex-Eastender Charlie Clements (TV Quick's Best Newcomer '06 & Best Soap Actor '07/ '08 and British Soap Awards Best Exit 2010) and directed by Drew Baker (Children of Eden Prince of Wales Theatre, The Last 5 Years the Tabard Theatre) this production explores the demands on soldiers when questions arise over whether orders from above are justified from a military viewpoint, or whether they are purely political in motive. Is it the job of the soldier to defend and protect the nation to a strict moral code, or simply to follow orders? And what happens when orders are given that go against everything a soldier beleives in- orders that cannot be militarily justified- orders that shake an individuals faith to the core- forcing the question: what would you do?
This production contains themes and language of an adult nature.
