Shell Shock – The Play

  • Show Information

Shell Shock is a stunning personal realisation of one soldier’s experience of learning to cope with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

After serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, Tommy Atkins’ observations on the absurdities of every-day life on civvy street are frequently comic, occasionally absurd, sometimes violent but always poignant. His wired over-emotional responses to post office queues, a trip to Ikea, his relationships and family lead to alienation and anger.

“Poignant and compelling, direct and witty, engaging and haunting”
