After a sold-out run of Vera Vera Vera by Hayley Squires at the Royal Court Theatre it will transfer to Theatre Local Peckham from 4-28 July.

While the cast were rehearsing at the Royal Court Theatre, we gave the Assistant Director and cast a camera and asked them to film some behind the scenes action.

Vera Vera Vera is a blackly comic play about what we are willing to fight for. Hayley Squires is a bracing new voice, clear eyed and loud, looking at violence, neglect and apathy.

The boy who comes back from a war far away in a wooden box is glorified and called a hero. As the funeral plans are made in a small Kent town, his siblings squabble over who he was. Maybe the fanfare isn't needed for this heroic martyr.

Hayley Squires is an actor. This is her first play and her first submission to the Royal Court.
