A "gripping and emotional play" looking at the triggers and traumas a veteran can encounter and what post-traumatic stress disorder means will be performed in Watford on Friday night – followed by a special meet and greet.

Set in a hospital waiting area, Battle Cry is a one-hour solo piece based on the stories of former soldiers battling PTSD.

It is being staged at the Pump House Theatre as part of the Watford Fringe festival and is taking place in partnership with Forces United, the Watford and area Veterans and Armed Forces Hub that is a division of the Former Players Club, and the charity Minds at War.

Tickets cost £10 and can be purchased via this link.

After the play, there will be a special meet and greet with the actor, Steve Cowley, as well as Hornets legend Luther Blissett OBE DL.

There will be a chance to hear about Forces United, and to talk to Herts charity Minds At War about the needs for NHS mental health support for veterans.

You will also be able to board the Minds at War 'Battle Bus', a support vehicle being developed to change lives and save lives.
