The Loving Ballad of Captain Bateman
Duration: 45 minutes

The writer Joseph Wilde and musician by Tim van Eyken's play is a modern love story based on a very old folk song in which a noble lord goes abroad, lands in prison and falls for the goaler's daughter. In the play, Captain Bateman is badly wounded in Afhganistan. Sofia and her father give him shelter and succour in accordance with pashtunwali, the code of honour and hospitality. But when Bateman inconveniently refuses to die they face grave danger from the Taliban for harbouring him and from the British army for keeping him prisoner.
