In northern France in the Second World War, three children encounter a lost American soldier. When the soldier’s camera is unearthed decades later, his grandson searches for meaning through the photographs inside. He discovers a surreal world of childhood and imagination, as fragments of a half-developed war explode into the present-day. 

First performed at Bedlam Theatre, Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2012.  A Strange Wild Song  toured nationwide throughout 2013 , and was revived for a House network tour in 2015.

Ramshackle, charming and funny.
