Effective piece of issue-based theatre dealing with UK treatment of soldiers
From the trenches of the First World War to the conflict in Afghanistan, Paper Tom (which moves back-and-forth between the two) asks how far British society has come in its treatment of soldiers when they return home scarred psychologically by battle. Straight-forwardly written, variably acted and using often dubious mime and visual effects, it is, nevertheless, a clear and effective piece of issue-based theatre.
Hill Street Theatre, 226 6522, until 29 Aug (not 24), 12.30pm, £8.50 (£6).
