About the Play

This play was written for Castaway. In 2005 a newlywed couple find themselves in honeymoon in Central Europe on the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Austerlitz, when Napoleon defeated the combined forces of Austria and Russia. In the politically charged post-cold-war Europe they find that the battle is being refought around them. Lola and her husband, an evangelical Christian, are sexually compatible but intellectually at odds, and as their honeymoon develops their domestic problems cause serious headaches for the military leaders in this darkly humorous and thought-provoking political and philosophical fantasy, interspersed with original songs.

Production Notes

Toured Oct 1995 - Apr 1996 Below are reviews of the play, not necessarily of our performance of it! But since we did premier it, we feel justified in putting them here. Anyway, there's one by Edward Bond there!
