About

MONDAY 14 – SATURDAY 19 NOVEMBER

PLEASE NOTE: the Post Show Talk with Ian Hislop & Nick Newman will now take place on Monday 14 November (not Tuesday 15 November, as previously advertised).

Ypres, 1916. In the trenches and under enemy fire, Captain Fred Roberts makes the entirely logical decision to fight the enemy by publishing a satirical magazine, The Wipers Times (after the army slang for Ypres). Defying both authority and gas attacks, it proves a huge success with the troops on the Western Front.

Poignant, subversive and full of gallows humour, the play is coloured by sketches and songs adapted from the original magazine. Based on the critically acclaimed, award–winning BBC film, The Wipers Times is above all a tribute to the resilience of the human spirit in the face of overwhelming adversity.
