Open Sky Ahead presents SCORCHED

Following its critically acclaimed debut at the Edinburgh Festival 2016, Open Sky present the UK tour of Scorched, a true story inspired by the writer’s grandfather. With striking theatrical invention and imaginative visual physical theatre this one man play tells the tale a World War II veteran and follows his memories sinking into the sands of time. 1941 – Egypt WWII: An escaped German officer. A two-day chase across the brutal Sahara. A triumphant capture. A hero’s return. 1991 – England: Jack reigns from the armchair of his rest home, a local legend. Decorated veteran of Tobruk. Former boxer, horse whisperer, charmer and prolific father. Memories are, by his own hand, tattooed upon his body but dementia is eroding his mind. As the Gulf War rages on his TV set, the past drags him back to the scorched desert sands. - “a powerful play that captures the horror of war and the disorientation of dementia" Britishtheatre - “a complete theatrical experience" Edinburgh Guide.
