I want to return to my home.

Three young men are coming home from war. Their stories, set at different times over the last 100 years, are beautifully interwoven in this compelling new play.

Following Frantic Assembly's sell out show Things I Know To Be True, The Unreturning explores the profound effect that war has on young lives, and asks - what does coming home really mean? What is home? And when experience has shattered you into a million pieces, will home help to put you together again, or treat you as an ugly truth it does not want to confront?
