It is August 1959, France, in a home for retired military men, where World War I vets Henri (played by Bob Goddard), Philippe (Ron Newell) and Gustave (Robert Hawkes) pass their days gossiping, reminiscing and exasperating one another with harebrained schemes to escape.

The play is a softly heroic treatment of three war heroes for whom death is a familiar presence. They decide to take on one final adventure – granted, an impossible and faintly ridiculous adventure – before the outside world completely forgets them.

"Heroes" opened Friday, Jan. 17, and closes Feb. 9, with performances on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday at 2:00 p.m. Admission is $18 for adults, $17 for seniors (60+), and $10 for students (any age with a valid ID). We’re honored to offer special admission price of $15 for veterans for performances of "Heroes."

Tickets may be purchased by calling the box office at 440-331-0403 Wednesday through Saturday from 1-6 p.m. or visiting www.clagueplayhouse.org. Clague Playhouse is located at 1371 Clague Road in Westlake.
