Written in response to Much Ado About Nothing and performed by Dominic Cooke's Pericles and The Winter's Tale Company, Roy Williams' Days of Significance
is set in market-town England and the deserts of Iraq. Two young
soldiers join their friends to binge drink the night before they leave
for active service. Their complex love lives and mortal fears directly
impact on their tour of duty. Roy Williams looks at how
the naive and malformed moral codes of these young men have catastrophic
reverberations for the West's moral authority.
