Patience, Gilbert and Sullivan's second most successful comic opera, is a hilarious satire on the aesthetic movement of the late-19th century. Much to the disgust of the Dragoon Guards to whom they are betrothed, a group of rapturous maidens are fixated with the fleshly poet Reginald Bunthorne, who is in love with Patience, the milkmaid. Just as Bunthorne is to be married, the arrival of the dashing Archibald Grosvenor and a curious group of aesthetic Dragoons sends Bunthorne's world into turmoil. Everyone lives happily ever after, but who will be Bunthorne's Bride?

In Tom Stoppard’s funnny and poignant translation of Gérald Sibleyras’s Les Vents des Peupliers (The Wind in the Poplars), we meet three veterans from the First World War who pass their monotony-filled days in a hospital by engaging in verbal battles of long-forgotten military campaigns, grumblings about the matron, and reflections on their life. Henri is afflicted by a gammy leg, Gustave suffers from agoraphobia, and Philippe passes out because of a piece of shrapnel lodged in his brain.
Their cantankerous camaraderie becomes strained when Gustave conjures up an escape plan. Looking over the cemetery to the poplars beyond, they dream of freedom. Will today be the day they finally make to Indochina or perhaps only as far as the top of the hill? This translation of the play premiered at Wyndham’s Theatre, London, in 2005 to critical acclaim, starring Richard Griffiths, John Hurt and Ken Stott.
