Shell Shock - Brighton Fringe 2017

Sweet St. Andrew's - Main Hall

One soldier's story of coping with PTSD. After serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, Tommy's observations on civvy life are comic and moving - responses to post office queues, a trip to Ikea, his relationships and family, leading to alienation and anger. Adapted from the novel 'Shell Shock: The Diary of Tommy Atkins', the play highlights the work of charities Combat Stress and Help For Heroes and is created with the support of the Sussex Armed Forces Network and Anglia Ruskin Veterans and Families Institute. "Poignant and compelling... direct and witty... engaging and haunting" (The Herald).
