Hurricane Hill
by Chris Leicester

Focussing on the political unrest of the 21st century, Hurricane Hill is a fast-paced novel, which examines the bond between soldiers on the battlefield and the effects that going to war has on an individual’s mentality.

Hurricane Hill centres on the moral dilemma:
Which life is more valuable; that of a child or a brother-in-arms?

Out in Helmand, the Insurgents are using children as young as 7 as decoys in fire fights. Paul Glover, a young soldier, has to decide whether to follow his training and treat the children as normal soliders, and shoot to kill, or be killed. Having become a new father himself, Paul’s actions come back to haunt him and left asking himself whether he’s done the right thing. When Paul arrives at the isolated house of a famous recluse his past is finally faced.

Hurricane Hill shows us past lives, events and reasons for the extraordinary predicaments that the characters find themselves in. As the storm advances and threatens to destroy each of them, the young soldier’s question is examined, challenged and ultimately answered.

‘One of the best visiting productions we have had the pleasure to stage’
