What Makes a Hero?

Major Oscar Hadley is investigating allegations of gross misconduct within a self-styled ‘Bully Boy’ unit of the British army. When young squaddie, Eddie Clark, from Burnley is interrogated, Oscar begins to discover that ‘truth’ in a modern insurgency can be a point of view rather than a fact. Bully Boy tackles the challenging moral issues of contemporary military occupation and its effect on the mental health of serving soldiers. In this ferociously gripping story, Sandi Toksvig, nationally known and loved as a comedian, author and broadcaster, writes with startling insight and tenderness about the minds of soldiers.

Bully Boy stars ANTHONY ANDREWS, who received worldwide recognition for his portrayal of the doomed Sebastian Flyte in Brideshead Revisited for which he won the British Academy Award (BAFTA) in the UK, the Golden Globe award in the USA and an Emmy nomination for Best Actor. Anthony has most recently played Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin in the 2010 film The King’s Speech.

‘Toksvig’s play has a hurtling pace… Anthony Andrews, reminds us that he is a formidable actor’
(Michael Billington, Guardian)
