Gustave (Noel Reidy) and Henri (Alan Weston) are two of three old soldiers in Terrace Little Theatre's production of Heroes. The dog also plays an important big in the play.

Old ‘Heroes’ keep fighting on

For the 100th anniversary of the First World War, Terrace Little Theatre presents a comedy about WWI soldiers in their golden years.

For the 100th anniversary of the First World War, Terrace Little Theatre presents Heroes, a comedy about old soldiers and their desire to continue to fight for what they believe in even in peacetime.

Veterans and heroes of the First World War, Henri, Gustave and Philippe are spending their golden years at a home for old soldiers.

Each man has physical and mental effects of the war still with him.

It’s the summer of 1959 and each of the men thinks the other two are crazy and may be right.

They spend the monotonous days on the back terrace of the home, along with a statue of a dog, who is a character in its own right.

They meet daily to quarrel, get on each other’s nerves and plot various escapades until their terrace is threatened and they plan their escape.

Baxter Huston returns to the stage after 10 years to play Philippe, newcomer Noel Reidy is Gustave and theatre veteran Alan Weston is Henri.
