A First Look at WW1 Drama Wipers. A New Play by Ishy Din

Posted on 7 April 2016

October 1914, Ypres, Belgium. The British forces, bolstered by huge numbers of volunteer soldiers from across the Empire have suffered huge casualties in one of the first bloody battles of The Great War.

As a sole survivor on the battlefield holds off the advancing enemy troops, a group of South Asian and British soldiers seek refuge in an abandoned barn. Over the course of a single night, this group of men must confront their fears and find a way to come together if they are to survive.

Inspired by the real life story of Khudadad Khan, the first South Asian soldier to be awarded a Victoria Cross for his extraordinary bravery at the First Battle of Ypres – this explosive new play by acclaimed playwright Ishy Din honours the contribution of the million South Asian soldiers who fought alongside their British brothers during the First World War.
