'Jack' . Shell shock and what came after

'Jack' . Shell shock and what came after

Jack, born 1899, stands in the corridor of a large psychiatric hospital in 1972, waiting to be picked up for his regular weekend release to the home of a surviving sister. He vividly rehearses the never ending round of events and memories which took him from the safety of his home and neighbourhood to serving as an under-age soldier throughout the main campaigns on The Western Front.

Jack Morris was the late uncle (mother’s brother) of Stephen Wale, the actor who giving this performance. Stephen spent several years researching family history and the historical background of his uncle’s story.
