I am promoting this because it is about War, and the Army, and Mental Health - all issues of key concern to me! Plus I want to check out the newest theatre in London - the St James. For all these reasons, I have got my ticket in!

Bully Boy by Sandi Toksvig
19 September 2012 – 27 October 2012

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, from Burnley is interrogated, Oscar begins to discover that ‘truth’ in a modern insurgency can be a point of view rather than a fact. Bully Boy tackles the challenging moral issues of contemporary military occupation and its effect on the mental health of serving soldiers. In this ferociously gripping story, Sandi Toksvig, nationally known and loved as a comedian, author and broadcaster, writes with startling insight and tenderness about the minds of soldiers.
