Pink Mist is a verse-drama about three young friends from Bristol who join the army and are deployed to the post 9/11 conflict in Afghanistan.
"Conveys the trauma of war with devastating impact. The rhythmic patterning of the verse, delivered with a ripe Bristolian lilt, gives the story and its insights into the war-fomenting cycle of love, grief and revenge, an immemorial feel, eloquently fusing the topical and the timeless."The Independent
"A stark and brutal message that is given more poignancy through Owen Sheers' beautiful lyrical poem."The Stage
