The Unknown Soldier

The Unknown Soldier


Jack stayed on when the guns fells silent, to search the battlefields for the boys that could not go home – for the dead and the missing, for both enemy and friend. And amongst the rusty wire and unexploded bombs Jack is looking for something – looking for someone. He has a promise to keep and debt to repay, and now there is this strange request from the generals.

A story of comradeship, betrayal and of promises both broken and kept following the carnage of World War One. A new theatre piece by the award nominated writer of Casualties.

Grist to the Mill is a new theatre company launched in April of 2012, producing new writing and forgotten classics for a new generation. Writer Ross Ericson, one of the company’s founders, who has recently turned his hand to writing has had noted success in 2012. His critically acclaimed adaptation of Henry Fielding’s ‘Tom Jones’ has been licensed by California based LA Theatre Works, to be produced as a radio play, and his play ‘Casualties’, directed by Harry Burton, was chosen for the opening season of the new Park Theatre at Finsbury Park in 2013.
