In Heroes, we meet three World War I veterans – Henri, Gustave and Phillippe – who pass their monotony-filled days in a military hospital by engaging in verbal battle of long-forgotten military campaigns, grumblings about the staff, and reflections of their lives. Their cantankerous camaraderie becomes strained when Gustave conjures up an escape plan. Looking over the cemetery to the poplars beyond, they dream of freedom. Will today be the day they finally make it to Indochina or only as far as the top of the hill? “achingly funny, piercingly sad … wonderfully entertaining” ~Daily Telegraph 2:00 pm July 20, 21*, 27, 28*; August 3, 4 8:00 pm July 18, 19, 20, 24, 25*, 26, 27, 31; August 1*, 2, 3
