Inspired by Ernst Toller's 'Hinkemann', Lee Hall (Billy Elliot, Cooking With Elvis) examines lives ruined by war. This intense, dark comedy looks at the emotional and physical scars suffered by Peter, an ex-soldier who served in North Ireland, and his relationship with his wife and friends in a Northern town in the early 1990's, which will draw many parallels to the present day.

Bollocks is a stage adaptation of Lee Hall's original play for Radio 4, Gristle, which was first published in 1997.
Also, this summer Screaming Theatre will be producing the inaugural Preston Tringe - covered by PWN here. The Tringe aims to be an exciting mini-Edinburgh fringe style festival in Preston, with a mixture of theatre, comedy, literature and music etc. Deadline for applications to perform is the 6th May.
