Welcome to our war: the true stories of British servicemen and women brought unflinchingly to life.
A soldier’s view of service, injury and recovery. From the war in Afghanistan, through the dream world of morphine induced hallucinations to the physiotherapy rooms of Headley Court, it explores the real consequences of injury, both physical and psychological, and its effects on others as the soldiers fight the new battle for survival at home. The play is a darkly comic, authentic and uplifting tale of survival.
