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.
