The boy who comes back from a war far away in a wooden box is glorified and called a hero. As the funeral plans are made in a small Kent town, his siblings squabble over who he was. Maybe the fanfare isn’t needed for this heroic martyr.

Vera Vera Vera, Hayley Squires’s first play, is a blackly comic piece about what we are willing to fight for. Upon its first production, Squires was hailed as a bracing new voice – clear-eyed and loud, addressing violence, neglect and apathy.

Vera Vera Vera was first presented at the Royal Court Theatre, London, on 22 March 2012.
