Days of Significance

Front Cover
A&C Black, Oct 16, 2013 - Drama - 128 pages
Written in response to Much Ado About Nothing and performed by Dominic Cooke's Pericles and The Winter's Tale Company, Roy Williams' Days of Significance is set in market-town England and the deserts of Iraq. Two young soldiers join their friends to binge drink the night before they leave for active service. Their complex love lives and mortal fears directly impact on their tour of duty.
Roy Williams looks at how the naive and malformed moral codes of these young men have catastrophic reverberations for the West's moral authority.
