Effective piece of issue-based theatre dealing with UK treatment of soldiers
This article is from 2011.
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.
