The Prodigals is a fast-moving, highly-energised new musical which began life at the Edinburgh Festival and now begins a new life at the Belgrade.
Colonel Luke Gibson is proud to lead the Scottish regiment his family has served in for generations. The two sons he has brought up alone are now young men; while Captain Mike Gibsonbattles to destroy opium poppy fields in Afghanistan, his brother Kyle fuels his bandâ€™s gigs with heroin.
When Kyle hits rock bottom, can he return home to the community he has insulted and rejected? How will his brother respond to his needs? Will Colonel Gibson balance his love for two such different sons with his responsibilities to all the soldiers under his command?
From its explosive choreographic opening on patrol in Helmand Province, through the comic absurdities of Kyleâ€™s drug-induced hallucinations, The Prodigals drives this extraordinary tale on with stunning new music and dance and a script that challenges us to explore the toughest of emotional battlegrounds.
