Event Details

After a long military career, life back on civvy street will be a breeze... right?
​
Tommy's observations on the absurdities of the everyday are “comic and convincing” (InDaily), but as life appears to conspire against him nothing is safe from Tommy's increasing outrage... post office queues to Ikea, computer games to ‘phone zombies, all feel the force of his frustration -"like a Michael McIntyre routine ramped up to 11..."
  
Adapted from Neil Blower Watkin's acclaimed biographical novel, 'Shell Shock: The Play' was created in association with military and mental health charities as a stigma reduction project for the military community and beyond.  Performances are followed by an informal interactive feedback sessions, or 'Fire Circle', where others are encouraged to share and, wherever appropriate, find professional help and advice.
​
Shell Shock: The Diary of Tommy Atkins by Gulf War veteran Neil Watkin is adapted and performed by comedy veteran
Tim Marriott.
 
'Shell Shock' will be at Edinburgh Fringe '18 supported by the Army@TheFringe before going to Australia in September supporting the charity Stand Tall for PTS on their 'Lightening Bolt' veterans tour and then at the Invictus Games.
 
"Tim’s performance in Shell Shock was real and relatable. The play provides a palatable and hope-filled insight into the suffering and isolation of returned vets who carry the multi-layered psychological ravages of the battle front. Tim’s sensitive reading of the audience also added to the power of the production. Well worth seeing and a very important piece of work to support mental health." - Clinical Psychologist, Integra
