Heart-wrenching and heart-warming all at the same time, The Two Worlds Of Charlie F gives those on civvy street a fascinating insight into life in the modern military.

In a unique approach, real British servicemen and women take to the boards to share their stories. Covering all aspects of an armed forces career – from signing up, to entering the theatre of war, to the fall out when tragedy strikes – the resonance of the tales is heightened not only by the stellar acting, but by the simple fact that they are true. The physical scars are showcased as the men and women talk about the injuries they have sustained, but it is the emotional scars which creep out as the play progresses that have a resounding effect on the audience.


In typical military form, however, the dark humour also takes centre stage. It is an inspirational tribute to the strength of the human spirit.

The concept was borne from producer Alice Driver’s belief that theatre can boost the confidence and self-esteem of the wounded, giving them a voice. And it's a voice that needs to be heard. This simple yet impactful production is a must-see, and will stay with you long after the standing ovation has died down.
