A ‘Talking Heads’ Script Reading of two musical theatre pieces about the effects of war on people’s lives.

“He’s The man With The Stained Brown Fingers” is a snapshot of two hospital visits by a niece to her Scots uncle in a mental asylum in the 1950’s, who has shell shock and other mental illness.


“Before A Winter Thin” is about a soldier leaving for his last tour of duty in Afghanistan. He is badly injured by an IED the same night as his wife gives birth to their baby daughter back home. It is a snapshot of the lead up to and immediate aftermath on the couple. The script is very lyrical and will be read by the writer, Sandra Robinson.
