WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
An old Afghan man cuts the grass alone amongst the headstones. He straightens up, stares out at the ancient mountains, and wonders what his boy's excuse is this time... The White Cemetery in Kabul stands as a tiny icon of misadventure, and the final resting place for an international cast of soldiers, explorers, aid workers and diplomats whose deaths span three centuries. An English ensemble exhume a litany of stories from a foreign land to question what is done in our name, in a layered reflection on change as told through the eyes of a father and son.
