REYTA Finalist Just Beverley shortlisted nominee o2 community publication award 2017
Glory Dazed

Get Ready for 'Glory Dazed'

After the amazing 'Goodnight Mr Tom', director Jake Smith turns his hand to something grittier.

Sam Edward-Cook, an actor in the series Peaky Blinders, plays Ray in Cat Jones's 'Glory Dazed'.  This dark comedy examines the plight of ex-servicemen in modern Britain, focusing on an Afghanistan veteran's attempt to find redemption through reconciliation with his ex-wife.

In collaboration with ex-soldiers serving prison sentences at HMP & YOI Doncaster, the play was originally developed by Second Shot Productions, a social enterprise that exists to give serving prisoners and ex-offenders opportunities within creative industries.  It won the BBC's Alfred Bradley Bursary Prize 2011.

Set in a backstreet pub in Doncaster, after hours, ex-squaddie Ray, mentally scarred from his time in Afghanistan, knocks on the door.  His old friend, Simon, the pub's landlord, feels he has no alternative but to let him in but, in the pub, are Leanne, a teenage barmaid, and Carla, Ray's ex-wife and the mother of his children. The stage is set for off-kilter drama and heart-wrenching recrimination.
