Days of Significance by Roy Williams

Guildhall School of Music and Drama

Three soldiers standing in silhouette against sunrise

Set in 2003, after the invasion of Iraq, Days of Significance follows the complex love lives and mortal fears of young soldiers departing their English market-towns for the deserts of the Middle East.

With questions around morality at its heart, this thought-provoking piece of theatre examines the cost of sending naïve young people to war, and the catastrophic reverberations for the West’s moral authority.



Please note, this play depicts events of conflict in the Middle East. The production contains adult content including racist, misogynistic and homophobic language, the use of racial slurs, graphic violence including blood and vomiting, sexual harassment and assault, nudity and indecent exposure, implied domestic abuse and depiction of suicide. 


These performances also include the use of blood, imitation guns and knives, flashing & flickering lights, blackouts, gunshots and other loud noises, as well as haze.  Please talk to a member of the Front of House team if you have any questions.

Running time: 2 hours, no interval 

This production is part of Milton Court's 10th anniversary celebrations

Presented by Guildhall School of Music & Drama

‘Days of Significance is a frankly terrifying and utterly compelling examination of the morality of sending young men to fight a war when they are ill-equipped to do so in every way‘
