A funny, fragile and profound fable about Post Traumatic Stress and the therapeutic effects of MDMA.
Recommended age : 14+
Seriously funny theatre specialists Jon Haynes and David Woods of Ridiculusmus present a funny, fragile and profound fable based on groundbreaking medical research and real-life war testimonies.
Ex-soldier and budding rock star Zach has withdrawn into a cardboard box in a kitchen in West Wales. His friend Ieuan arrives offering recovery – in the form of a capsule containing 3,4 methylenedioxymethamphetamine with which he claims to have successfully treated his own post-traumatic stress.
Parachuted into their recently fractured pasts, Zach and Ieuan swing between dreamboat heroism and woozy enlightenment via a head warping exchange on patriotism, conflict and supermarket shopping that will tickle, move and appal you in equal measure.
The show deals with themes of mental illness and contains strong language.
The show includes a stroboscope effect lasting approximately two minutes.
1 hour performance followed by an opportunity to discuss the show with the writers/performers.
