WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Afghanistan. Amongst the debris of a bomb-attack blast, four young British soldiers try to pick up the pieces. The UK. A couple worry about the strange behaviour of their nine year old son and his imaginary friend as their marriage crumbles around them. Separated by 3000 miles, but they are all in it together... Exploring themes of war, trauma, kinship and empathy, Almost Near is a stunning new play about wanting to be a part of something, and what it means to be alive.
