Combining real lives and stories with fiction and performance, Minefield digs deep into the personal impact of the Falklands war.

Thursday 02 November - Saturday 11 November.

“I can tell you the story again of the wounded Argentinian soldier who died in my arms. But it wo​n’t necessarily ma​ke me cry now. Sometimes it can feel raw again. But I keep it under control and I tell it like a story.” -  Lou Armour.

What is a veteran? Survivor? Hero? Mad Man?

In Lola Arias’ Minefield six Falklands / Malvinas war veterans who once faced each other across a battlefield now face each other across a stage. Together they share memories, films, songs and photos as they recall their collective war and embody the political figures that led them into it.

Soldier, veteran, human – these men have stories to share as they take us from the horrors of war to today’s uncertainties, with brutal honesty and startling humour.
