Shell Shock
Saturday 1st July

After serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, Tommy Atkins' observations on the absurdities of every-day life on civvy street are frequently comic, occasionally absurd, sometimes violent but always poignant. His wired energy leads to hyper-emotional responses; from post office queues and a trip to Ikea to his relationships with family and friends  can lead to alienation and anger.

“Poignant and compelling, direct and witty, engaging and haunting” Eastbourne Herald.
