Film version of acclaimed play
ACCLAIMED author and Falmouth University writer-in-residence Owen Sheers is presenting a film adaptation of his award-winning play The Two Worlds Of Charlie F.
Sheers, pictured, is a Welsh-born poet, novelist, screenwriter and playwright whose works include The Dust Diaries, a non-fiction narrative set in Zimbabwe that won the Welsh Book of the Year 2005, Resistance, a novel set in Wales after a Nazi invasion that was adapted last year into a film starring Michael Sheen, and The Water Diviner's Tale, a collaboration with Oscar-winning composer Rachel Portman that premiered at the Royal Albert Hall as part of the BBC Proms in 2007. He has published two poetry collections, The Blue Book and Skirrid Hill, which won a Somerset Maugham Award.
The screening will be held at the state-of-the-art cinema at the University's Penryn campus on Monday from 6pm to 8pm, and is open to the public.
The Two Worlds of Charlie F, which was directed by Stephen Rayne, recounts the stories of former military servicemen and women who sustained serious and life-changing injuries while serving in Afghanistan. What sets this performance apart is the cast – from the company Bravo 22, which is made up of wounded soldiers who came together to perform the atrocities that they witnessed.
