In four languages (with English supertitles) and performed by an international ensemble, FRONT combines the Remarque and Barbusse novels with Flemish contemporary sources to explore the horror of WWI from both sides of no-man’s land.

Thalia Theatre returns to the Edinburgh International Festival for the first time since 2004's Andromache. FRONT is a co-production between Thalia Theatre and NTGent, and was adapted by

Perceval, Christina Bellingen and Steven Heene.
