About Soldier On
What happens when a company of ex-soldiers becomes a company of actors - a theatrical band of brothers? A group of veterans and actors rehearse a play about a group of veterans and actors. It is not a cure-all but the bonding, the humour - the "Theatre of War" - all help to put them back together again. Although worlds apart they begin to realized there are more similarities between military life and the theatre than they realized; they build a powerful new world of their own. This is a heart-warming story about surviving the forces, dealing with traumatic experiences, and what happens when you leave the military family.
Soldier On is produced by Amanda Faber and The Soldiers' Arts Academy, a platform through which serving and ex-serving military personal and their families can participate in the creative and performing arts: soldiersartsacademy.com
