Mametz

    £5.99

    A play about one of the bloodiest conflicts on the Somme, the battle for Mametz Wood. Blood and poetry flow as night falls in the Monmouthshire woods, where National Theatre Wales offers audiences a glimpse of one of the bloodiest conflicts on the Somme: the battle for Mametz Wood. Four thousand of the 38th (Welsh) Division were killed or wounded during the taking of the wood, men and trees falling together. Birdsong was silenced by artillery fire; severed limbs hung from the branches like leaves.
