About this product
- DescriptionCoco, Mari and Helena are The Sweethearts, a manufactured girl band who are rarely off the front page of the tabloids. In need of some positive publicity, they travel to Afghanistan to do a special gig for the troops at Camp Bastion before the base is handed over to Afghan officials. A group of battle weary soldiers, chosen to protect these three beautiful celebrities, eagerly await their arrival. But when there's an attack on the base, The Sweethearts and the soldiers are thrown together and forced to wait it out in very close quarters...Marking the first anniversary of the departure of British Troops from Afghanistan after a thirteen-year campaign and the deaths of 453 British service personnel, The Sweethearts is a new play about the people we choose to make into our heroes and how we tear them back down...
- Author BiographySarah Page returns to the Finborough Theatre where she was formerly a script reader. Sarah was a member of the Royal Court Theatre's Young Writers' Group, before being invited to join their Studio Writers' Group in 2013. She recently participated in the Milano Festival Playwrighting Scheme in association with the Finborough Theatre. Her first full-length play Pilgrims (Etcetera Theatre), debuted last year to critical acclaim, and Sarah has also had performances of her work at the Arcola Theatre, Curve Theatre Leicester, Old Vic Tunnels, Hampstead Theatre and Soho Theatre. Sarah was a contributing writer for BBC Radio 4's new comedy series The Show What You Wrote, and her first television pilot GYPPO made it to the final stage of the BBC's Scriptroom 4 Prize. The Sweethearts was a finalist in the Curve Leicester Playwrighting Competition, whose judges included the Finborough Theatre's Artistic Director Neil McPherson, and was also supported by IdeasTap, Writing East Midlands and BBC WritersRoom. The play had its first performance as a sell-out staged reading at the Finborough Theatre's Vibrant 2014 - A Festival of Finborough Playwrights.
