Event Details

Featuring: Owen Sheers (Novelist, Poet, and playwright) Maurice Decaul (Poet, Essayist, Playwright) Mark Mazower (Professor of History, Dept. of History)

Pink Mist tells the story of three young Bristol men deployed to Afghanistan. Returning to the women in their lives who must now share the physical and psychological aftershocks of their service, Arthur, Hads and Taff find their journey home is their greatest battle.

This play was inspired by 30 interviews with returned servicemen and first staged at Bristol Old Vic in 2015. Described as fearlessly lyrical in its imagery” (The Times) and “the most important play of the year” (What’s On Stage), Pink Mist will be published in the US for the first time on April 4 by Nan A. Talese/Doubleday.

Owen Sheers will read from his work, followed by a panel discussion with Peter Meineck and Maurice Decaul. For event details, please go here: http://heymancenter.org/events/owen-sheers-reading-of-pink-mist-and-panel-discussion/
