WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Today, as our young soldiers return home with scarred psyches and injuries never before imagined, Johnny Got His Gun's relevance is once again clear. Based on American author Dalton Trumbo's classic 1939 novel and adapted for the stage by Bradley Rand Smith, Johnny Got His Gun is the inspiring story of twenty-year-old Joe Bonham, a quadruple amputee who has lost his ability to see, hear and speak during his service in World War I. Regaining consciousness, Joe discovers that while his brain is healthy and able to reason, the rest of his body is irreparably shattered, leaving him trapped forever within the confines of his own imagination. The play follows his valiant struggle to find some way to communicate with the outside world, to rejoin humanity and to confront society as a living example of the cost of war.
