Okay my lot. From the US there's David Rabe's Vietnam plays. Take your pick in the UK Tricycle Theatre has just premiered Called To Account an investigation into whether  or not Tony Blair could be indicted for leading the country into an ileagal war.

 Then try Behold the Sons of Ulster Marching to the Somme or Stephen Poliakoff's Clever Soldiers or Brian Friel's Freedom of the City  or Willis Hall's The Long and the Short and the Tall. So in that lot  you've got WW1, WW2 Ireland and  Iraq.

 Now  from my home country Australia we have a famous  play about  the impact of the changing generations and its view of the  wars in  The One Day of the Year and of course my latest epic The Girl I left behind Me.

 

Good reading
