Shell Shock - The Play
  • The House, Plymouth University

Save event

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 everyday life on Civvy Street are frequently comic, occasionally absurd, sometimes violent but always poignant. His wired energy leads to hyper-emotional responses - from post office queues and a trip to Ikea to his relationships with family and friends - lead to alienation and anger. 

Poignant and compelling, direct and witty, engaging and haunting" Eastbourne Herald
