Summary

Michael Morpurgo’s wonderful storytelling and Jim Broadbent’s compelling performance combine to tell this true story against the epic backdrop of World War Two. Francis Cammaerts, Jim Broadbent and Michael Morpurgo happen to be all part of the same family, so this production is a very special collaboration bringing family members' voices to life.

Francis and Pieter are brothers. As the shadow of one war lingers and the rumbles of another approach, the brothers argue. Francis is a fierce pacifist while Pieter signs up to fight. What happens next will change the course of Francis’ life forever...and throw him into the mouth of the wolf.

Keep some tissues handy

The story of a man who didn't want to fight in the war, but ended up leading resistance fighters in occupied France. sad and uplifting in almost equal measure. It's read really nicely by Jim Broadbent and written by Michael Morpurgo - two really talented people.
