Event Details

An award winning, internationally acclaimed stand up solo show following one man's journey through PTSD. Performed in support of Help for Heroes. To be followed by a panel discussion.

"Astonishing and astounding" Outstanding Show - Fringe Review  ​

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 an automated job centre interview 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.

"Like a Michael McIntyre routine - ramped up to 11..." (Herald)

Adapted from Neil Blower Watkin's acclaimed biographical novel, 'Shell Shock: The Play' is a stunningly performed, universally praised, award winning solo show created in association with military and mental health charities as a stigma reduction project. Using humour to open and normalise conversations about mental health, performances are followed by informal interactive feedback sessions where others are encouraged to share their own stories 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 (BBC TV's The Brittas Empire, Allo Allo)

'Shell Shock' was at Edinburgh Fringe '18 supported by the Army@TheFringe before going to Australia in September promoting the Invictus Games, touring from Brisbane to Melbourne and Sydney.

"Tim’s performance in Shell Shock was real and relatable. The play provides a palatable and hope-filled insight into suffering and isolation. 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
