The Man who Left is not The Man who Came Home

An inspiring play based on real stories exploring the impact of going to and returning from war on the families of the armed forces.

It is the result of over a hundred interviews with soldiers and soldiers’ wives. The drama is interlaced with a live, true account from military wife Sam Campbell-Coombe.

WHY? A story of resilience, of hope, of change – of what it’s like when the man you love is going to war and might not come back
