Shell Shock

Theatre and Physical Theatre • Contemporary

A darkly comic tale of an ex-army medic who does NOT have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Adapted from the Neil Watkin's deeply personal novel, it portrays a moving and poignant struggle with life back on Civvy Street after tours in Iraq and Afghanistan where emotionally charged scenes are fused with light-hearted observations of everyday life – a trip to Ikea, a seemingly mundane post office queue, relationships and family.

Performed by Tim Marriott and created with the support of military charities Help for Heroes, Combat Stress & the Armed Forces Network it comes to Adelaide after 5⋆ reviewed seasons in Edinburgh and NY where 'Shell Shock' was invited as a Fringe Encore Winner.

"Outstanding... Astonishing and astounding" FringeReview.
