SUMMARY

Lance Corporal James Randall left tours of duty in Helmand six years ago. But as he's about to discover, Helmand is still very far from leaving him.

On Remembrance Sunday he delivers a birthday message to his young son from his living room in south London - a last-ditch attempt to reconcile their broken relationship.  Surrounded by action figures and boyhood memorabilia, James unfolds a fragmented story in which the worlds of civilian Britain and front-line Afghanistan brutally, and catastrophically, collide.

Much Further Out Than You Thought (winner of a 2015 IdeasTap Underbelly Award) is a new one-man play which shines a different light on the very human cost of war. As we welcome back troops from Afghanistan, Much Further Out Than You Thought is a timely reminder of a soldier's life after the battlefield. It is a glimpse into the fictional life of a fictional soldier; Lance Corporal James Randall doesn't exist, but the traumas that live inside him most certainly do.
