The War On Terry

​by Hugh Dichmont

My girlfriend thinks I’m obsessed with death. Well maybe I am, but only as much as the next rotting sack of bones.

It’s Terry’s birthday. At 27, he is now older than his older brother Danny.

With a shoebox full of dead ladybirds, Terry reminisces over their childhood, whilst fighting to come to terms with his regrets over how things could have been different. A darkly comic monologue about boys, Christmas socks and not growing up.

Audience reactions to The War On Terry at Nottingham Playhouse:

“It gave me the sudden realisation that love, guilt, shame & pain are experienced very differently by every individual, but we are not as different as we think”
“Thought provoking and moving”
“Leaves you questioning if you’re crying or laughing for the right reasons”
“A show with guts, pathos and a terrific understanding of the anguish of families”
“Outstanding performance by Steve Conlin”
