Inspired by Michael Tomlinson's 'The Most Dangerous Moment'...
It is April 1942 and World War II has spread to the East. Lenny, Charles, Jack and Godfrey are four Allied airmen stuck on an observational airbase in Ceylon, as far away from combat as they can imagine. Their days consist of humour and hijinks - anything to keep themselves occupied - until one day they receive an order that could change everything.
Amidst the backdrop of when the Japanese fleet attacked naval bases in Ceylon, 'Only Soldiers' looks at the bonds of war, the families formed and the friends lost.
ONLY SOLDIERS is the first production of Mind Adventures' year in residence at The British Council.
