Shell Shock

Army @ the Fringe - Drill Hall


After a long military career, life back on civvy street should be a breeze... right? Adapted from Neil Blower Watkin's acclaimed biographical novel, Shell Shock was created in association with military and mental health charities. In a standout performance by veteran comedy actor Tim Marriott, it traces Tommy Atkins’ increasingly outraged frustration with civilian life, from post office queues to Ikea, computer games to phone zombies as he struggles to cope with normality after experiencing combat.
