Australian Tour of Shell Shock the play in Parramatta

Join us for the premiere performance of Shell Shock in Parramatta.

This acclaimed one-man comedy drama was awarded Best Solo Show at the 2018 Adelaide Fringe and was a Fringe Encore Show at the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe and 2017 New York Fringe.

A compelling play based on the novel by Neil Blower Watkin, and adapted for stage and performed by Tim Marriott, we are proud to be touring Shell Shock in Australia in October.

Audiences and critics alike have loved the play: Shell Shock is 'comic, compassionate and convincing' InDaily, 'fabulously witty' Advertiser and 'like a Michael McIntyre routine ramped up to 11'.

Shell Shock is one person’s story of coping with the symptoms which can lead to Post Traumatic Stress. After serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, Tommy Atkins’ observations on life on civvy street are poignant, frequently comic and always moving. His over-emotional responses to post office queues, a trip to Ikea, his relationships and family lead to alienation and anger.

Tim Marriott is a writer, director and veteran comedy performer, best known from his BBC TV sitcom days, including seven series of The Brittas Empire as deputy leisure centre manager Gavin, and as RAF Pilot Tigger Thompson in 'Allo 'Allo

There will be information and support available at the performance for any audience members who would like to talk about the content of the show, or any other topic that has arisen during the performance.

This 5* award winning play is on tour alongside the Lightning Bolt II Convoy in support of the Invictus Games, and you can find the Australian Tour dates here: http://standtall4pts.org/shellshock/
