Tickets & Tour

Tickets & Tour Information

Shell Shock is presented by Smokescreen Productions and supported by the Sussex Armed Forces Network, Anglia Ruskin University, Help For Heroes and Combat Stress.

In the autumn of 2016 the Chancellor awarded this project a grant from the LIBOR fund to enable us to develop the production and embark on a number of venues in late spring / early summer 2017.

Please note we may be filming the performance on one or more dates for promotional use. There will also be requests for audience feedback to develop the production further and in line with our evaluation to encouraging the use of performing arts to address stigma and barriers to care, and to develop further research relevant to this area.

UK Tour

In 2017 Shell Shock will be touring number of strategic locations, ideally in reach of larger military communities, army barracks, veterans organisations, interested NHS trusts etc. If you have any suggestions or would like to book the production for a public or private performance please get in touch.

SEPTEMBER 2017

Following sell out performances and 5* reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe, two new plays from Smokescreen Productions have been selected as ‘Fringe Encore Winners’ to perform in New York at The SoHo Playhouse 7-18 September 2017. #fringeencoreseries

SHELL SHOCK:

“A must see… astounding” Fringe Review – Outstanding Show

A darkly comic tale of an ex-army medic who does NOT have PTSD… We follow ‘Tommy’ as she reflects on life back on ‘civvy street’ … shopping malls, crowded bars, post office queues, a trip to IKEA, family and her very square boyfriend… You’ll know where she’s coming from if you have ever felt angry at the world, frustrated by crowds, queues, traffic jams… if you’ve ever felt stressed or experienced trauma… if you’ve ever served…

“Director Tim Marriott has created an astonishing piece of drama” 5*, Scene +1

MENGELE:

“One of the best pieces of theatre I have ever seen… a masterclass of writing and acting” 5*, Business Daily

1979, the beach in Brazil where the notorious doctor of Auschwitz drowned. The play imagines him meeting a mysterious woman who cajoles, teases, challenges and ultimately condemns him. Powerful performances and layered writing are fused into an historical drama given contemporary reference… philosophical, poignant, provocative impact theatre.

“Highly impressive… polished and accomplished” Fringe Review – Highly Recommended
