About this event

For the past four years Bron has had an intimate friendship with a high ranking military official. He's a right-wing, cigar smoking, Margaret Thatcher loving conservative and she's a lefty, greens voting, almost vegan performance artist. This is their story.

In the fraught age of Brexit, Trump and the world-wide division between right and left, Waterloo asks: what happens when you break enemy lines?
