a playabout Gallipoli by Justin Fleming
Although Shellshock is a play about war, about both sides of a battle which took place in Turkey 100 years ago, it is not a play that focuses on the battlefield itself with all the sounds and fury of war. Instead, it is a story told in an unexpected way, with characters you might not usually find in a war story….
When a mysterious visitor arrives from Turkey in 2015, young Tom Lindsay, his widowed father, Jack, and grandmother, June, all become embroiled in a drama which had its extraordinary origins at Gallipoli a hundred years before. Justin Fleming's exciting new play is for all people of all ages. It is a gripping story which, by gradual and intriguing revelations, takes us on a thrilling journey to the powerful heart of humanity.
Shellshock will be performed at Riverside Theatre, Parramatta from July 30 2015 to August 8.
