A co-production with the National Theatre and Bush Theatre

When a private contractor goes missing in Iraq, one man embarks upon a hunt across the post-war Middle East

‘When a diver’s goin to the depths, he has to go slowly. On the way down he stops for a minute or two, treads water. Lets his body get used to the conditions. That’s what Amman is for contractors. After Iraq. And before. We tread water.’

Stovepipe was performed at HighTide Festival, West 12 shopping centre, and the Australian National Play Festival.

Exhilaratingly convincing, inspired and informed. A highly impressive transfer from Suffolk's talent-nurturing HighTide Festival

Could almost be a sequel to 'Black Watch’... inspires shock and awe
