Battle Cry play shines spotlight on PTSD in Buxton Fringe offering
Real-life experiences of people suffering Post Traumatic Stress Disorder have shaped a play that will be presented during Buxton Fringe.
Battle Cry is the story of a soldier, with 25 years’ service in the miltary, who finds it hard to open up about his PTSD when he attends a support session.
The play will be presented at High Peak Book Store & Cafe, Brierlow Bar, Buxton, on July 23 and 24 at 8pm.
Steve Cowley, who lives in Chesterfield and is a member of Hasland Theatre Company, stars in the one-man play which will strike a chord with every suffererer of PTSD.
Battle Cry is written by Matt Fox and adapted by Steve Cowley, who said: "The pandemic has brought mental health to the front of everyone’s mind, and we can’t think of a better subject to kick off our touring schedule with."
