The Two Worlds of Charlie F

G Live, Guildford

Thu 22 - Sat 24 May, 7.30pm

The Two Worlds of Charlie F

Real life stories performed by British Servicemen and women


'I am Lance Corporal Charlie Fowler. I lost a limb serving my country in Afghanistan. You may have seen our story on the BBC 1 Documentary Theatre of War. We used theatre as part of our recovery process which resulted in the creation of this award-winning play. Having sold out in London – playing to critical and celebrity acclaim – due to popular demand, we are now taking our play on a major UK and International Tour. We are the ‘Regiment of the Wounded’.'

Winner of the 2012 Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award, The Two Worlds of Charlie F is performed by serving and veteran soldiers, and explores the effects of injury and its impact on others, before, during and after, and the UK theatre tour coincides with the centenary anniversary of the outbreak of World War 1.

A darkly comic, authentic and uplifting tale of survival.


Written by award-winning poet and playwright Owen Sheers, directed by Stephen Rayne and composed by Jason Carr.

The Surrey Advertiser, media partners for the G Live tour dates, recently interviewed Cassidy and G Live's Director, Alvin...do take a look!
