Patrolling the dusty streets, every step could be your last.

You’re twenty years old, a soldier in the British Army, and everyone’s watching your every move – the locals, the enemy, your comrades, your commander. The pressure is constant.

Private Edward Clark is every inch the hero to his mates in the Bully Boys, but he’s shattered inside – haunted by one particular battle on which his whole life has turned.


When Major Oscar Handley is called to investigate the outcome of this chaotic firefight, his enquiry lifts the lid on Eddie’s fragile mental health, and an unlikely bond is formed between the two men.

Sandi Toksvig is best known as a comedian, broadcaster and writer. In this intense and enthralling drama, Toksvig digs deep into the ‘war on terror’ to explore the relationship between two men in crisis.

Bully Boy is directed by Dan Sherer, Artistic Director of the Colchester based Real Circumstance Theatre Company.
