Close Quarters (NHB Modern Plays)

by Kate Bowen (Author)
unlimited loans, One at a time

Cormack, Findlay and Davies are the elite. They are the first generation of women to serve in the British infantry in close combat roles, ever. They’ve aced physical tests only five per cent of female soldiers can pass; they’ve been trained to shoot, fight and kill. They’ve proven their exceptional skill and discipline – while everyone around them questions whether they should even be allowed to serve. And now they’re about to join the action.

Kate Bowen’s taut, funny and powerful play follows three pioneering young women in the world’s most dangerous workplace.

Close Quarters premiered at Sheffield Theatres in 2018, in a co-production between Sheffield Theatres and Out of Joint, and directed by Out of Joint’s Artistic Director Kate Wasserberg.
