Sandi Toksvig's play Bully Boy

Sandi Toksvig’s play Bully Boy receives its Eastbourne premiere at the Under Ground Theatre, from Wednesday, Februay 19 to Friday, February 21 (7.45pm).

Bully Boy is a ferociously gripping play that tackles the moral issues of contemporary military occupation and its effect on the mental health of soldiers with startling insight.

Major Oscar Hadley is investigating allegations of gross misconduct within a self-styled ‘Bully Boy’ unit of the British army. When young squaddie, Eddie Clark, is interrogated, Oscar discovers ‘truth’ in modern warfare can be a point of view rather than a fact.

Sandi Toksvig, nationally known and loved as a comedian, author and broadcaster, writes with startling insight and tenderness about the minds of soldiers.

From Bootcamp Theatre, who performed a sell-out run of The History Boys at the Under Ground last August.

Tickets £11 (£9 UGT members/students). Available from Eastbourne Tourist Information Centre or by calling 0845 680 1926.
