War in Mind

Wed 15th May 2019 2:30PM
St John on the Wall, Bristol,, BS1 2EZ
This powerful performance looks at the lives of real people affected by shell shock in the First World War.

· Driver William Charles Phillips, a Tetbury man who, though he never actively fought at the front, died in Gloucester Asylum from paralysis in 1917.

· Doctor Harold Hills, later to be a Stroud doctor, who worked with sufferers at the Front and prevented many men being shot for desertion through his testimonies.

· Violet Hall, a wife and mother from a Gloucestershire village who lost her sons and was then cut off from the local community because she was collecting their war pension.

Based on archive records and through research War in Mind looks at the treatment for sufferers, the problems for families and the stigma attached to what is now known as Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome.
