A Time Like This.

GLOBE THEATRE 18th thru 27th April.


What if there was one secret from your time in the First World War that haunted you for the rest of your life?

Douglas Chapman is trying to live out his unremarkable days in his rest home. But one secret, and a haunting question surrounding that secret, from the First World War, remains unanswered, leaving him unable to live his final days in peace.

A TIME LIKE THIS, Some secrets can’t be forgotten.

A Time Like This is set in 1984. Douglas, 88, returns from an Anzac Day parade and starts to reminisce about the Great War during which he was a war artist. He is haunted by memories of the shocking events he witnessed.
