A miniature epic that explores the mad savagery of war with biting black comedy, and takes us into the dark heart of a strange and surreal conflict.
As soldiers, priests and scavengers roam a battle-scorched landscape, a young medical officer finds herself abandoned and useless, unable to locate the hospital or even the war she was promised.
'surreal comic fizz… Brechtian epic rewritten with droll bite' – Independent
'a sharp satire with an irresistibly silly strain… zany humour and inspired wordplay' – Financial Times
'Surreally humorous, and perceptive about the mindlessness of conflict' – Evening Standard
