by Gérald Sibleyras (translated by Tom Stoppard)
Will today be the day they escape?
In a fusion of the comic, sad, and absurd, Heroes tells the story of Gustave, Philippe, and Henri, three WWI veterans in a home for retired soldiers as they engage in verbal battles about long-forgotten military campaigns, grumble about the staff, and reflect on their lives. The monotony of their days is shaken up by Gustave’s plan to escape, but could they possibly manage it?
