A powerful anthem for the youth of World War One that offers a compassionate look at war and its devastating effects. Adapted from Pat Barker's Booker Prize-nominated novel.

Craiglockhart War Hospital, Scotland 1917. Poet and soldier Siegfried Sassoon has been institutionalised in an attempt to undermine his public disapproval of the war. His Army Psychiatrist, Dr William Rivers, has been tasked with returning shell-shocked officers to the trenches, yet under Sassoon’s influence, has become tormented by the morality of what is being done in the name of medicine.

Produced to mark the centenary of the outbreak of WWI, Regeneration opened at the Royal & Derngate, Northampton, in August 2014, before embarking on a national tour co-produced by Touring Consortium.

Nicholas Wright’s plays include the acclaimed National Theatre adaptation of Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials, Mrs Klein, Travelling Light and Vincent In Brixton, which won the Olivier Award for Best New Play in 2003. His writing about the theatre includes Changing Stages: A View of British Theatre in the Twentieth Century, co-written with Richard Eyre.

'[a] superb stage version of a work of genius... gutting and unmissable' - Independent

'shocking, tender and grimly funny... gently breaks your heart' - The Times

'deeply moving... [a] humane and enriching play' - Guardian

Review:

Regeneration, one in Pat Barker's series of novels confronting the psychological effects of World War I, focuses on treatment methods during the war and the story of a decorated English officer sent to a military hospital after publicly declaring he will no longer fight. Yet the novel is much more. Written in sparse prose that is shockingly clear -- the descriptions of electronic treatments are particularly harrowing -- it combines real-life characters and events with fictional ones in a work that examines the insanity of war like no other. Barker also weaves in issues of class and politics in this compactly powerful book. Other books in the series include The Eye in the Door and the Booker Award winner The Ghost Road.

About the Author:

Pat Barker is an award-winning English writer and novelist most famous for her Regeneration Trilogy, named by the Observer as one of the ten best historical novels of the 20th century.

Nicholas Wright's previous plays include Travelling Light, The Last of the Duchess and the acclaimed National Theatre adaptation of Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials, Mrs Klein, Rattigan’s Nijinsky, The Reporter, Cressida and Vincent In Brixton, which won the Olivier Award for Best New Play in 2003. All of his plays are published by Nick Hern Books.
