Battle Cry

Battle Cry is a solo play by Matt Fox, based on the true story of a former soldier, Adam, struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

The play follows Adam as he recounts his experiences in war, the horrors he witnessed, and the heavy toll this took on him. Battle Cry is a powerful and moving exploration of the human cost of war, and a reminder of the devastating impact PTSD can have on those who experience it.

Battle Cry is a challenging and thought-provoking play which has been received to universal acclaim by both veteran and non-veteran audiences.
