Bomb Happy

Everwitch Theatre  with Helmsley Arts Centre & York Normandy Veterans present

Bomb Happy by Helena Fox

“I haven’t seen anybody dead before and we’re in the water, wading to the shore and we’re literally brushing against… bodies rolling in the surf…eighteen,nineteen year olds...people that we know...”

Bomb Happy evocatively brings to life the verbatim memories of the five remaining York Normandy Veterans who, as young lads from York, Leeds, Sheffield and London, find themselves part of one of the most important military operations in World War Two.

Told in their own words, Bomb Happy follows each Veteran’s unique journey from D-Day to VE Day and highlights the lifelong impact of PTSD.

Meet the Veterans- a unique opportunity to meet the real men behind the stories after the show!
