BULLY BOY by Sandi Toksvig
The play considers the impact of War on the relationship between an Officer, Oscar, who uses a wheelchair after service in the Falklands and Eddie, a young Private accused of throwing an eight year old boy down a well during a raid in the Middle East. The play asks questions of politicians who launch wars without regard to the consequences. It’s a thought provoking play, but definitely worth a watch.
(Please note that this play does feature some bad language.)
Friday 27 April and Saturday 28 April
