The Tricycle Theatre back T4T
The Tricycle Theatre have donated tickets for their current
production, 'The Great Game', an educational series of 12 short
plays about the culture and history of Afghanistan. "The Great
Game" was a term used for the strategic rivalry and conflict
between the British Empire and the Russian Empire for supremacy in
Central Asia - running approximately from the Russo-Persian Treaty
of 1813 to the Anglo-Russian Convention of 1907.
The play was recently reviewed in The Times by the incoming Chief
of Defence Staff Sir David Richards who championed its value for
members of the Armed Forces as well as the general public saying:
'Nothing learnt in the classroom will have had the same subliminal
effects as this. It is crucial that all of us who work out there
have a more nuanced understanding of the historical background that
got us to this point.'
Tickets For Troops Chairman, Lord Marland said: "Tickets For
Troops has benefited from a great wave of generosity from our
ticket donors who have wanted to demonstrate their support and show
their appreciation for the dedication and commitment of the
marvellous men and women of our Armed Forces. I would like to thank
The Tricycle Theatre for their kind and fantastic support in
establishing this relationship".
