The New End Theatre presents a provocative insight into the personal and political dilemmas of the father who died too young and his now middle-aged son, still reeling from the childhood loss of a parent.

A British military cemetery in Ramleh, Israel. When David Weatherstone goes looking for father Ralph's grave he is confronted with more than he bargained for. Ralph appears before his son as the 23-year-old he was when he died. Troubled by the shadow of Israel's dividing Wall, Ralph implores his son to help bring it down.

But so many lost years mean there are scores to settle, questions to ask and answers to withhold. Will the absence of a lifetime stand in the way of duty and passion and cloud David's own moral judgement?

THE WALL is DOUGLAS WATKINSON's third play following Caesar and Me, Let's Do It My Way and The Dragon's Tale. He has adapted extensively for stage and radio, and has penned hundreds of scripts for television including many episodes of the infamous Midsomer Murders and Poirot as well as the eighties' series Z Cars and The Onedin Line. He writes crime novels under the pen name Marcus Barr, their titles including Haggard Hawk and Easy Prey (published 2011) featuring retired detective Nathan Hawk.
