A new theatre project is helping veterans deal with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The project from Forces charity Combat Stress uses acting as a form of therapy for former service personnel. The men have been rehearsing Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ and hope to perform the play at a West End theatre later in the year. The charity predicts more than 7,200 troops who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan will develop PTSD in the coming years.
