A unique collaboration of wounded, injured and sick Service personnel, veterans and their families from across the UK are uniting to stage a one-off remembrance performance that they will create in less than five weeks.

The production, ‘Unspoken’ will be based on the memories and experiences of those from the forces community. Writer Gary Kitching will begin workshops in mid-October so he can compose the script.

The cast includes veterans who’ve suffered life-changing injuries and family members who can use this show as a ‘voice’ to highlight their perspective of having a loved one in the forces. Gary went on to say “It is their ability to get on and deal with whatever is thrown at them, and their ability to find humour in the darkest places. I think they will surprise, entertain and move a lot of people.”

Bravo 22 Company was created by Alice Driver in partnership with The Royal British Legion, the Ministry of Defence and the Theatre Royal Haymarket in 2011 to help improve self-awareness, confidence, self-esteem and motivation in order to aid personnel with individual paths to recovery.  Following the success of the inaugural West End production of ‘The Two Worlds of Charlie F’, there have been several shows across the country including Plymouth, Aylesbury and Newcastle as well as two arts projects in Brighton and Manchester.
