It was announced that Arthur Darvill (Rory Williams Pond) will soon be appearing alongside Lewisâ€™s Laurence Fox in the first ever West End production of Jonathan Lewisâ€™s Our Boys.
The play is an account of the experiences of five young soldiers recuperating from injuries sustained in battle. It will open at Londonâ€™s Duchess Theatre on Wednesday 3 October, but preview shows will begin at the Duchess on Wednesday 26 September and the play’s West End run will come to an end on Saturday 15 December.
Our Boys, which was named Best New Play at the 1993 Writersâ€™ Guild Fringe Awards, sees the injured troopsâ€™ quiet life of TV and light-hearted banter shattered by the arrival of an unwanted authority figure in their midst: a young, hard-line officer straight from Sandhurst.
Rounding out the cast are actors Matthew Lewis, better known as Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter films; Cian Barry, who appeared in ITVâ€™s Titanic mini-series; and stage talents Jolyon Coy and Lewis Reeves.
