The Rose of Jericho

Alex Martinez

Directed by: Alex Martinez

An ex-soldier casts an unflinching, darkly humorous eye over his childhood, its impact on his relationships, his experiences of war, and the three key events that have dramatically changed his life. He is still fighting, but it’s a different war now…

Alex Martinez has worked with Stewart Lee, Richard Herring and Extras producer Charlie Hanson. For this powerful drama he teams up with Kevin Hely, who co-founded Fly by Night Theatre Company with Conor McPherson and has performed around the world.
