Synopsis

A Parisian boulevard comedy about three men: an idealist, a pragmatist and a fence sitter. Set in August 1959 in a home somewhere in France for retired military men. We sit outside on a terrace in the garden of a convent hospital where Gustave, Philippe and Henri are hatching a plan to escape. “Gerald Sibleyras’ 90-minute French comedy, given an elegant English gloss by it’s translator Tom Stoppard and the ironic title Heroes, achieves a seductive fusion of the comic, sad and absurd.” Nicholas de Jongh, Evening Standard by Gerald Sibleyras translated and adapted by Tom Stoppard
