“I can tell you the story again of the wounded Argentinian soldier who died in my arms. But it wo​n’t necessarily ma​ke me cry now. Sometimes it can feel raw again. But I keep it under control and I tell it like a story.” Lou Armour.

Following its hugely successful sell-out 2016 run at the Royal Court, MINEFIELD has toured internationally to enormous acclaim and returns to London for just 11 performances this autumn.

What is a veteran? Survivor? Hero? Mad Man?

In Lola Arias’ MINEFIELD six Falklands/Malvinas war veterans who once faced each other across a battlefield now face each other across a stage. Together they share memories, films, songs and photos as they recall their collective war and embody the political figures that led them into it.

Soldier, veteran, human – these men have stories to share as they take us from the horrors of war to today’s uncertainties, with brutal honesty and startling humour.

MINEFIELD was originally commissioned and co-produced by LIFT, Royal Court Theatre, Brighton Festival, Universidad Nacional de San Martín, Theaterformen, Le Quai Angers, Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, Maison des Arts de Créteil and Humain Trop Humain / CDN de Montpellier.
