About this event

An award winning realisation of post traumatic stress and anxiety performed by Tim Marriott

"There's nothing wrong with me - it's the others!"

After a long service career, Tommy Atkins attempts to return to 'normal' life... after all he's seen, Civvy street will be a breeze, right? As Tommy trails around a crowded shopping mall, tackles job interviews and takes on a night out on the town, his observations on the absurdities of the everyday are “comic and convincing” (InDaily), "fabulously witty" (Clothesline) and "moving and insightful" (Broadway World)... but as life conspires against him, nothing is safe from his increasing outrage - Post Office queues to Ikea, computer games to ‘phone zombies, all feel the force of Tommy's frustration as his world closes in and crashes around him.
