    About

    A funny, fragile and profound fable based on ground-breaking medical research and real-life war testimonies.

    Ex-soldier and budding rock star Zach has withdrawn into a cardboard box in a kitchen in West Wales. His friend Ieuan arrives offering recovery – in the form of a capsule containing 3,4 methylenedioxymethamphetamine, with which he claims to have successfully treated his own post-traumatic stress.

    Parachuted into their recently fractured pasts, Zach and Ieuan swing between dreamboat heroism and woozy enlightenment, via a head-warping exchange on patriotism, conflict and supermarket shopping that will tickle, move and appal you in equal measure.
