Four Canadian soldiers recount their own version of an ill-fated mission in the most volatile region of Afghanistan. More than just a retelling of accounts, the story — on stage at the Great Canadian Theatre Company — reveals how personal relationships can affect the outcome. This Is War provides a glimpse into the devastated psyche of a contemporary soldier. Written by Hannah Moscovitch, a brilliant young playwright, and directed by Eric Coates.
• This Is War runs from Feb. 4 to 23 at the Great Canadian Theatre Company, 1233 Wellington St. W, gctc.ca
