Charlie Ward At Home - Fuel Theatre | Thespie

C Ward, 1914. In a makeshift hospital, behind the front line, the war’s first casualties are treated. To boost morale, medical staff arrange for a Chaplin film to be shown for the bedridden, with the ward’s ceiling serving as the silver screen. For one soldier, Harry, the flickering images, whirring projector, and Chaplin’s perfect comic timing trigger complex emotions and memories. Transported from the trenches to childhood, from trauma to dreams, the experience sets him on a journey into a personal no man’s land. Charlie Ward at Home is an intimate, immersive, and powerful piece that places you as a patient at the heart of a wartime hospital, where this unusual therapy brings solace and comfort to those injured on the battlefield.
