About Bomb Happy

A verbatim play about ordinary young men in extraordinary times.

Bomb Happy evocatively brings to life the powerful testimonies of five Normandy Veterans, inexperienced young conscripts, who find themselves part of one of the most dangerous operations of World War II. As the action unfolds, memories – humorous and harrowing – collide, allowing a close-up experience of life on the frontline, whilst wives’ accounts highlight the lifelong impact of PTSD.

Veterans will be in attendance for Friday and Saturday performances, giving audiences an opportunity to meet them after the show.

13-25 August (not 19th)
14:20 (Tues-Thurs) | 15:40 (Fri-Sun)
£11 (£8.50)

Venue:
Army @ The Fringe in association with Summerhall (Venue 210)
