Show Information

The Two Worlds of Charlie F.

“What do they teach us in training? Adapt and overcome.” Charlie F.

Wounded, injured and sick Service men and women perform their own story at Sherman Cymru, Cardiff.

A unique, unforgettable and uplifting piece of theatre.

The Two Worlds of Charlie F is a soldier’s view of service, injury and recovery. Moving from the war in Afghanistan, through the dream world of morphine-induced hallucinations to the physio rooms of Headley Court, the play explores the consequences of injury, both physical and psychological, and its effects on others as the soldiers fight to win the new battle for survival at home.

Taken from the personal experience of wounded, injured and sick Service personnel involved, The Two Worlds of Charlie F. is a darkly comic, authentic and uplifting tale of survival.

The play was performed twice on 22nd January 2012 at The Theatre Royal Haymarket to sell out audiences and critical acclaim.

Reviews

“Charlie F. is the first time that real-life service personnel have appeared on stage to tell their own stories. It makes for an evening of rare, raw power." **** Independent

“Powerfully affecting – Gripping. The authenticity of verbatim drama and the saltiness of barracks – room humour with the finesse of something more lyrical." *****The Telegraph
