Meet Tommy Atkins

Written by playwright/actor/musician Peter Gill (Talbot House, The Jerry Lee Lewis Story) this play details, through the eyes of a simple ?Tommy' the reality of war for those who actually fought it. In an astonishing solo performance, ?Meet Tommy Atkins' takes the audience through his war - a war that saw him fight at Ypres, Passendale, Loos and on the Somme and that took him to the depths of despair but also brought him unique comradeship that he would never find again. From the beginning of the war to the end, Private Tommy Atkins was there. This is his story.

Jim (20Apr17): To be honest this was more lecture than drama and consequently we never engaged with the central character. Could have been shorter and more pithy but in general needed fewer facts and more emotion ... shame, I have visited all the places mentioned within the last month and this play conveyed none of the feel of them, nor of the things that they represent.
