The Two Worlds of Charlie F is a soldier’s view of service, injury and recovery. Moving from the war in Afghanistan, through the dream world of morphine-induced hallucinations to the physio rooms of Headley Court, the play explores the consequences of injury, both physical and psychological, and its effects on others as the soldiers fight to win the new battle for survival at home. The play is a very personal and very moving look at the effects of war on individual combatants, but it also has a huge amount of humour and humanity.
The Charlie F Project is providing an opportunity for the award-winning play and its key messages to be heard by more people in the 100-year anniversary of World War 1. It will provide paid employment opportunities for all the original service personnel who are now veterans.
The original concept for The Two Worlds of Charlie F came from executive producer Alice Driver in the winter of 2010. Driven by the belief that theatre can empower the individual, she set about designing a model that would see the process of theatre used to boost the confidence, self esteem and give a voice to the wounded, injured and sick (WIS) service personnel and veterans of the Armed Forces.
‘I am so proud and overwhelmed. It is the most moving play I’ve seen for a long, long time. The public should get behind this and be part of something unforgettable.’ Ray Winstone
‘It was very, very, very funny, very, very touching and I think everyone should see it!’ – Joanna Lumley
