BULLY BOY by Sandi Toksvig

An amateur production by special arrangement with Dominie Drama on behalf of Nick Hern Books. Directed by Deborah Mulhall

A ferociously gripping play about the moral issues of contemporary military occupation. With Jaymie Knight as Major Oscar Hadley and Patrick Cullen as Private Eddie Clark.

Truth in war is a viewpoint, not a fact. In war, all soldiers lose.

Patrolling the dusty streets of Afghanistan, every step could be your last. Private Edward Clark is every inch the hero to his mates in the Bully Boys, but he’s shattered inside – haunted by one particular battle on which his whole life has turned. When Major Oscar Handley is called to investigate the outcome of this chaotic firefight, his enquiry lifts the lid on Eddie’s fragile mental health, and an unlikely bond is formed between the two men.

Sandi Toksvig is best known as a comedian, broadcaster and writer. In this intense and enthralling drama, Toksvig digs deep into the ‘war on terror’ to explore the relationship between two men in crisis.

A Night of Play presents the contemporary masterpiece.
