About Les Enfants Terribles’ The Trench

The Trench was first performed in 2011 and has toured nationally several times since. The show follows Bert, a miner in WW1 and is based on a true story. Told entirely in verse and accompanied by Alexander Wolfe’s ethereal sound track, the show features four actors using lots of physical theatre to recreate the journey Bert faces as he descends beneath the trenches of war and faces his own demons along the way.
